Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

What Will You Do?

My heart is heavy, yet full of hope.

This week I followed a link to another blog, then followed another link, and found these 2 videos. After crying through them, I asked the girls if they would like to watch. As we watched, Josie-Tatum asked, "What? There are big kids who need families, too?" Then as we continued to watch she said, "I know one thing. If I didn't have to go to school, and you didn't have to go to work, and Ellie was out of her hard pants, we would go all around the world and bring back every orphan Daddy will let us bring home."

Now, I know that makes us all smile, but here is my question. What will you do? Our house if full, but I can't say, "I'm done." While I've donated a small amount to organizations helping orphans, I want to do more.

So, please, please take the time to watch these videos. I promise you will not be the same after you watch it. I'm not!

You can visit www.shaohannahshope.org for more information about what you can do.





After much prompting from the Holy Spirit, God used these videos to move me forward. I am working with another lady in our church to increase adoption awareness during November, National Adoption Awareness month. Perhaps others would like to join us!

God bless you, Robbi. You have such a HUGE heart. Have you heard of Pearl River outreach? Kay Bratt (the author of Silent Tears) has an incredible organization that helps sponsors orphans in China. This week, our family decided to sponsor a little girl who needs open-heart surgery to remain in foster care in China. It's $35 a month. Here's a link to the remaining orphans who need sponsorship on Kay's blog:

Have to say that the adoption bug had already bitten again, but now it is of epidemic proportions!
