I wanted to share with you a blog post from an adoptive mom who likens her first taste of Africa and processing of it to someone who is going through the five stages of grief. She expresses so well the overwhelming feelings that come after being there, where these precious children were born.
“Join me in this conflicted state, where my sin and my obedience wrestle daily. Choose to live with eyes open. Stop spectating. Suit up, and get on the field, where you strive for the goal but often meet resistance and sometimes fail. It is not funner. It’s harder. At times it feels like a burden. But it is what is true. What is real. And it is worth it, because it is where Jesus resides.”
