“This is how God works: he puts his people in positions where they are desperate for his power, and then he shows his provision in ways that display his greatness.” -David Platt

This pretty much sums up our desire to adopt.  I love being in a place where God's greatness can simply shine.  You take this leap of faith, not knowing what to expect.  Sometimes after the jump, you wonder, "what in the world have I done?"  It is in those moments of uncertainty and utter desperation that God really shows up.  I'm preparing myself for those types of moments...moments that I become smaller so that He becomes so much greater!

note: reason #271 that I love my boys but would also love to have a girl...I typed this while playing light sabers with Jackson.


  1. From the moment I set eyes on your blog and store, I've been in tears. I went to google looking for DIY Christmas gifts and I stumbled across your website. I myself, the adopted daughter of a pastor and his wife I am completely aware of the true blessing of adoption. I am so very grateful for God's divine providence in placing me into my family 23 years ago and I pray that you will be able to give love for a very special little girl very soon! Remember every perfect gift is from above.

  2. Hi Meg,

    I am so encouraged by your blog, and by this post in particular. My parents adopted my sister from China 11 years ago when I was 16, and God began a work in my heart he has continued ever since. Adoption is so amazing and such a demonstration of His divine love. My husband and I plan to build our family through adoption, but so frequently doubt creeps into my mind as well. So happy to see the progress you have made in your adoption journey and how He has provided for you and your family. I'll be anxiously awaiting pictures of your lovely lady!

    Love, Lindsey
