Jeff and I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful state of North Carolina in April and got to meet with four of our adoptive families living in the Raleigh area. 


Battle and Shannon Watkins hosted our afternoon get-together where the kids jumped on the trampoline, played croquet and enjoyed lots of great desserts.

I talk to many families all across the country on the phone but it’s a very special treat if I get to meet them in person.  Our adoptive families are some of the very finest people you will ever meet.  They love Christ.  They have made and will continue to make many personal sacrifices that are a necessary part of parenting children from hard places.. 

And of course to see the children who I have prayed for over many months and years was the biggest blessing of all.  Jeff has taken pictures of most all of them from the time they came into our care at the orphanage and to be able to see them again surrounded by their parents and siblings is pretty amazing!

Thanks to all of you who could make the time to be there with us and especially to the Watkins for having all of us at your beautiful home!

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
His mercies never come to an end!
