Adoption Day Finally Arrived!

Gotcha Day (round 1)

After many years of prayers, Hannah and I felt called to the ministry of adoption.  (OK, Hannah has always felt called to adoption.  It took her a decade to bring me around.)  I finally agreed for reasons I’ll cover in depth via another post as well as a dedicated sermon (most likely on Mother’s Day of 2017).

For now, the short answer to: “why are you adopting 3 kids when you already have 3 kids?” is: the gospel.

Adoption is how I got into God’s family.  Jesus saw fit to irrecoverably adopt me into His eternal family.  For me and mine, it only seemed appropriate that we go and do the same.

So, we adopted.  Yesterday.  3 kids, which doubled the amount of little people who drink milk out of my fridge.


Gotcha Day! is Finally Here

Everyone is Invited

After 900+ days in the foster system as wards of the State of Oklahoma, 3 young children will forever change our lives this week.

At 10:30 am on Tuesday, 14 March 2017, our entire family (all 8 of us) will stand before a judge at the Oklahoma County Juvenile Justice courthouse to legally adopt two boys and one little girl.
