We have experienced a jam-packed four months since the last blog post. Everything has changed in the best ways.
When I reflect on this three year adoption process so far, I see waves of provision, both practical and spiritual. But embarrassingly the journey is marked by many moments of my doubt and bitterness that God’s plan doesn’t look like mine.
