David Platt, author of Radical and pastor of The Church at Brook Hills, is in China with his wife and two sons to bring home a little girl from MaoMing. He has chronicled the journey to adoptive parenthood beautifully, I encourage you to begin reading here and continue. Their new addition, Mara Ruth, is positively precious, so be sure to watch a few videos as well!
Kam, mom to sweet Seth who passed away from his heart defects before she could travel to bring him home from China, shares her grief transparently and eloquently at her blog Faith, Family, Adoption. Please take a few moments to visit her site and say a prayer for their grieving family and for their precious Seth.
Angie, mom to Emery recently adopted from China, details the amazing transformation that has taken place in the few months that Emery has been home on her blog, A Blog Full of Weldons. You won’t believe the difference between the “then” and “now” videos…
Sarah, waiting mom to a little one in China, shares the story of how they came to ‘find’ their new daughter, Madeline, on her blog aptly named… Madeline. Be sure to read the whole story of “God’s Plan vs. My Plan”: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5.
And lastly, if you’re like all of us around here, you’ll want to take a few moments (or hours!) and travel vicariously with these folks currently in China to bring home their kiddos:
- Football and Fried Rice – welcome beautiful Ruby!
- Two More Treasures
- Lots o’ Kidz
- The O’Cain Crew
- The Church at Brook Hills pastor David Platt and Family
