If the wind goes where you send it, so will I. Here am I. Send me.
We had one daughter and one son, life was relatively easy, simple and sweet. But, God called us to something different, something harder, a place where relentless love would no longer be an abstract concept but would be felt through the pursuit of a little boy named Deklan. We learned that trauma isn’t swept away like tears and fighting for your child can be seen in paperwork and at doctor appointments, kneeling at their bedside or sitting in an IEP meeting. And despite the hard, we felt the beautiful; the first words, the tender hugs, the security built only by a family. We learned that with His strength we can do hard things and so we stepped out again knowing this, too, will be hard and different and full of unknowns. Calvin captured our hearts with his giggles and we felt God nudging us towards a new step in our adventure, a new son to welcome into our family. We’ve been greeted with open arms into the world of Down syndrome and excitedly await the journey Calvin will bring. Our adoption paperwork is complete; we hope to travel to China mid April to bring home Calvin and show him that he, too, is worthy of being loved fiercely. Thank you for joining with us on this journey, your support is appreciated more than you can know.
