After a few years of marriage without children, God has been giving them to us rapid-fire; Took was born in 2011, Cub was born in 2013, and Ana joined our family in 2015 after a two year adoption process. We haven't always felt called to special needs adoption, but after the birth of Took, God started to open our hearts to those children who are often overlooked because of scary histories or medical diagnoses. We are not heroes. We are very normal people who have cast ourselves upon the grace of God and understand that there is no way we can outgive Him. God has always provided for our needs, most especially our need of a Saviour who can perfectly obey God in our place, and who has taken the punishment for our sins.
Being parents is not always easy or fun, but it is absolutely one of the most wonderful and rewarding things that God has given us to do, and we are very blessed by each child He has given us.
