After over a year of praying about adoption, the Lord started a life-changing season in the life of my family on March 23, 2011. By His grace, God presented us with an unexpected opportunity to adopt an 9-year old girl with special needs from China. God broke our hearts and we surrendered to His call. So, we committed to adopting this little girl, we named “Eden” because he first loved us and because we love her. We received our daughter in Nanning on July 2, 2012 and brought her home July 12.
Obviously, there is so much more to this God-sized story than what is written. If you would like to hear all the details in the context of the Word preached, you can listen here: Sermon: In His Time (Mark 5:21-43) or start reading here.
