a beautiful journey

The Associate Pastor of my church and his wife, recently adopted a little girl from India. He and his wife played a major roll in my life as a teenager, and now as an adult, they have impacted me even greater.

Husband and I have always discussed adopting, but it seemed a distant dream. So out of reach, so intangible. There is the occasional family in our church who adopts, but nothing has been so close to home as this particular journey.

Since I work for my church, and my desk is right outside his office, I’ve actually been blessed to “listen in” on their journey from the very beginning.

From the very first time they received a picture of little Siddhi, to the moment just 2 weeks ago when they received the news that they could finally go get their daughter. It has been an incredible journey to witness and to pray through.

God was in every detail, but the most incredible thing for me to witness was this couple’s willingness to just let God lead. They knew that this wasn’t anything they were in control of, and so they didn’t try to control anything. What an incredible lesson to learn by watching the actions of these people, who opened themselves up for everyone to see.

This is their story.
