Adoption is a beautiful illustration of God’s goodness in the land of the living. It is not without its struggle and heartache but it is a worthwhile calling that involves so many hearts. For me, it is an honor and a privilege that God would call us to such a place. I have always wanted to be a mom to a house full of kids. I always felt I would adopt, even as a little girl. I never dreamed life would take me where it has.
Our story starts in 2001. When we met I was a freshman and Marshall was a senior. I was pretty bothered because I wasn’t ready to meet my husband yet! It was my first year of college, and my first time living out from under my parent’s roof. I remember trying to break it off with him because I knew he was the man I would marry and it scared me and annoyed me because it was so nuts!
