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!

If you have questions about adoption, our work in South Africa, or spina bifida, please email me at rbmattox@bellsouth.net

Two Reasons to Smile

I smiled when my cell phone rang today. Smile with me....the caller ID showed Caleb's cell phone number. His submarine was surfacing, so he was standing on top of the sub calling his mama and she felt like she was on top of the world. :)

And, finally, I have been able to upload this video from a month ago. Smile at the debut of Moose, aka my nephew Joshua, and Ellie singing Ellie's theme song. (Don't forget to scroll down and pause the play list.) "You fall down. You get back up again. You may be knocked down but not out forever."



Ellie would love to see your comments telling her what an inspiration she is!

Ellie, that was soooo amazing!! I am so impressed with your awesome singing and your love for the Jesus!! KEep singing to Him everyday-- Im sure He loves hearing you just as much as we do too. My little 4 year old girl has spina bifida too and she is tough and courageous just like you. God made you girls special and He has such an amazing plan for your lives. You wont ever let anything stop you becuase you will ALWAYS get back up again!!!!
