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!

A Hush Over Heaven

(Pause the play list. You have to hear the audio. The room was dark,)

Left alone when he was an infant.
Estimated to be 4 months old, for know one knew.
Taken to an institution where he spent 6 years of his life.
Hundreds of children.
Few adults and resources.

Finally joining his forever family.

Hearing the name of Jesus for the first time.
Not understanding at all who this Jesus is.
But, just 3 weeks later, praying to Jesus in blind faith.
Thanking him for every member of his new family.

A hush over heaven.
For Jesus said, "Listen to my child."
