The fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. Dueteronomy 14:29

In Case You Were Wondering

These last posts about darkness may have left you wondering if adoption is worth it.  

Consider these pictures as food for thought

These are the first pictures we received, and a recent picture of each of our precious little ones

The other night I showed Silas this first picture we received of him and said, "hey Silas do you know who that is?"
"That's Nicholas (the name given to him by the orphanage)"  He replied  "Daddy, is he sad?" 
"Not anymore son...not anymore."


  1. Wow. So amazing how much of a difference just a few months can make. You're right, the first few days, weeks and months are SO hard but it is worth it. Thanks again for sharing.

  2. Hi there! I don't know you from Adam(although I think my friend Andrea told me about you, maybe, if you live in DS) but am on the homeschool e-mail list and saw your "Is adoption worth it?" post. I would LOVE to get together with you. We have 3 brown boys, 2 from Liberia, 1 from Sac. along with 4 other kids of differing skin colors;) We live up in Somerset and I have had a heck of a time finding another family close by "like us" since moving up here from So Cal a few years ago. If you would like to e-mail me you can do so at faithwingnut at yahoo dot com. Sorry to post this on your blog but I didn't know how else to get ahold of you.
