A Good Work Fulfilled

Three years ago, Kevin and I began pouring every last second into thinking, researching, and praying about adoption. We became more and more certain that God was calling us to adopt a child from Ethiopia. As the journey progressed, we found out He intended not one but two sweet boys to be our sons and a certain verse became my theme:

With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by faith.

2 Thessalonians 1:11

As our adoption journey drug on, I became more and more aware of how necessary God’s power would be to bring our boys home. We knew He had prompted us by faith to adopt these children and so, in faith, we continued to trust that His power would prevail and the boys would one day be our children. On July 21, 2011, we stood in a family court here in Louisville, Kentucky to finalize our adoptions, and we saw God’s good work fulfilled. The proceeding was more of a formality than anything else, but for me, it was a moment to worship. My amazing God, the God of the universe, called little ole me to travel across an ocean and make two boys who were not my own my beloved sons. He purposed, He called, and He fulfilled. Oh, how I love Him and how I praise Him for His power and His beautiful ways.

Most importantly, I am a Christian, saved by God’s grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. I am also happily married to a truly great guy, Kevin, and we have four adorable kiddos, Mikias (7 years), Molly Kate (4 years), Miles (3 years), and Madden (15 months). I’m a home school mom but in my spare time, I love reading, running, cooking, and interior design. In the year 2010, we went from one to four children in a matter of four months. While we would have never planned it that way, I am so thankful that God’s ways are higher and better than mine. Everyday, I can see how God designed each one of us (biological and adopted) to fit together in the most wonderful way. My prayer is that our family will always be a sweet aroma of the love of Jesus to those around us. Come on by and visit us here.
