This post is one of the most important blog posts I've shared to date. I'm not saying that lightly - if you've never taken the time to watch a video I've posted here, I'm asking you to watch this one.
As many of you have read here before, my oldest son Jason and his wife Naomi are in the process of adopting through foster care. Thanks to the prayers of many, many readers, friends and loved ones, Baby K will officially be a part of their family this year...I say officially, because he's been a part of our families from day one.
Last year Jason and Naomi completed a homestudy through an adoption agency in Portland and joined their waiting pool. They have had two failed adoptions, meaning the birth mothers chose to parent rather than choose adoption for their babies. While we rejoice that these babies are lovingly being raised by their birth moms, there's no getting around the fact that our hearts were a little bit...okay a lot...torn in the process. Adoption can be a rocky road for sure, but we know that when it happens - when Jason and Naomi find their baby sent from the stars - it will all make sense. When they hold that baby in their arms they'll know - you're the one we were waiting for.
This adoption video tells their story...I'm asking readers to pray for Jason and Naomi in their journey to adoption. Please feel free to share this video as well, whether that's on your blog or your FB page or wherever. If you know of a mom or couple seeking a wonderful family to raise their baby, I can't think of a better one than Jason and Naomi.
