Adoption Awareness

So, if you are new here, or just don't know that much about me, I am a huge proponent of adoption. It absolutely breaks my heart that children go to bed every night without someone to call mom and dad; without a family to love them. This is why Jonathan and I are foster parents and are also doing foster to adopt, although none of our placements have been available for adoption. There is an amazing family not too far from me who I "met" through their blog. I was referred to their blog when a friend asked for prayer for their family 2 years ago. At that time their daughter who they had adopted from Serbia six months before was battling for her life after having major open heart surgery. Chrissie went to live with Jesus on May 19 of 2010, but has impacted so many lives. This family is the one that told me about our foster agency 2 years ago. Since saying goodbye to Chrissie they have adopted 6 more children, some from the United States and some from other countries. They are amazing advocates for adoption and care of orphans. They are truly an inspiration to me. I hope that you will keep their family in your prayers (as the anniversary of Chrissie getting her angle wings approaches) as well as consider purchasing a T-shirt to support their orphan ministry.

Here is the link to their blog: All Are Precious In His Sight

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:
 to look after orphans and widows in their distress and
 to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27


  1. Wonderful that you got your award :))... you do such amazing work for your foster kids and for awareness xoxo

  2. I am so blessed by this. I do not know a whole lot about adoption and really would like to learn more. It is wonderful that I will get to witness it through your blog. I think fostering is so very important. I looked into but we already have to many people for space :( My mother left me for a short while in the care of a foster family. I remember the love and compassion they showed me. They would let me sleep on the floor of their room, when I was scared. I have even thought of trying to find them now to say thank you. I will go check out the link!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog Kristy, Im so sorry you lost your precious Grant and pray you find comfort with connecting to all of us. I think its wonderful that you foster and are trying to adopt. I would like to eventually try to adopt, so I will keep following your journey to see how things are going for you guys. Big hugs, Nan xoxoxo

  4. I am visiting from Tesha's link up :)
    Adoption is a wonderful I am so happy you and your husband are doing this!

  5. I have such a big heart for adoption (my mom was adopted) and it's always been our "plan" to adopt.
