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!

More Blessings from our Weekend

The Pruiksmas were such gracious hosts. When they learned we were going to be in their area for a few days, they offered us their guest room. It certainly saved us money, but more than that, it was a relaxing place to stay. The fellowship we have with other Christians who are also touched by adoption once again never ceases to amaze me.

We met David and LeighAnn on our last trip to China. They were adopting for the first time. Look at this precious girl.
Josie-Tatum spent most of her time carrying Lynnea around on her hip. She was so good with her. David and LeighAnn said they had never seen her take to another person like she did with Josie-Tatum. JT suggested we needed to adopt another little girl, one as young as Lynnea. When I asked, "Where in the world would she sleep," she said, "Whitney needs to get married an move out, so she could sleep in our room."

I know there is at least one person out there who is asking with fear, "Is she really going to adopt again?"

There is likely at least one more who is asking with excitement, "Are they going to adopt again?"

So, let me clarify.....Unless Jesus appears in my bedroom as I type and speaks audibly, I don't think we'll be adopting again!

But, we did have fun.....

We also enjoyed Cow Appreciation Day while we visited. We quickly decorated white trash bags and headed to Chick Fil-A for dinner. Since David works for the corporate office of Chick Fil-A, his family was all decked out in their cow suits, too!

We have come home refreshed and encouraged...reminded that God has so much more planned for us when we follow him on an adoption journey. It is an abundant life filled with blessings we can hardly imagine. It is......

The Miracle of More
