Our Prayer

Our Prayer: We are redeemed and adopted by God as sons through Jesus Christ. Through the process of adoption, let us show this beautiful picture of Grace to another of God's children.

Greetings from the other side of the rabbit hole!

I decided to update the blog.  Mainly because it has been so long, but also for a little closure.  It has been a little over two years since we turned in our paperwork at Lifeline.  Turns out Zac was not even 3 months old at the time.  It's hard to believe.  After a lifetime of thinking about adoption, we got serious about the time he was born.  Coincidence?  I think not.  I believe that Zac was meant to be our son from the moment he was born.  Now he's been home 8 months!  It's hard to imagine our lives without him.  He was meant for us, and us for him.  He was fearfully and wonderfully made by God... to be part of our family.  Now he's your typical two-year-old.  He's into EVERYTHING.  He's SO smart... adorable... loving... sometimes mischievous...  He loves his brother and sisters so much.  And they love him too.  I am so thankful that he has them.  He's full of energy and never seems to stop, except for that rare moment.  Every once in a while I scoop him up and sit him on my knee and hug him tightly.  I nuzzle his neck and whisper in his ear, "I love you, boy."  And in that moment he is still.  He's learned to hug back, and pat me on the back.  He sits quietly for a minute or two, and then he's off once again.  Another adventure calls.

My goal has always been to turn this blog into a book for Zac.  For the most part, I've written it for him.    So I guess I feel like this part of the story is complete.  I want to thank everyone for following us and for contributing to our adoption in so many ways.  This has been such an amazing process.  I hope that Zac has changed you the way he has changed us.

So, where do we go from here?  Well, look on the right side margin.  Now you can follow Zac and his family on Twitter (If you're not on Twitter, you can always check back here to see the same Tweets).  If you do follow Zac, what will you get?  Photos of our little man growing up... hopefully a pearl of wisdom here and there... reflections from a couple of adoptive parents...   We believe that adoption is a beautiful picture of God's grace:  He has not forgotten ANY of us.  We're reminded of this every day we look at our son.  So don't be surprised if we remind you too.  What you won't get is a bunch of personal details.  Ok?  Then let's go!
