Day 15: Share a Bible Verse

I had a different post planned for tonight.  One about Claire's 15 month appointment, complete with a cute video, but my computer is not cooperating AT ALL.  So, I'll just continue with these posts until I can get the glitches figured out...

Day 15: Share a Bible Verse

I shared one of my favorite verses (Isaiah 41:10) the other day, but another verse has been running through my mind a lot lately. 

Paisley, being adopted by the Tam Family
 I follow many Reece's Rainbow families.  Adoption, especially of a child with Down syndrome, has been on my heart a lot lately.  These children have been abandoned, left behind simply because they have Down syndrome.  Because they are like Claire.  And that hurts my heart.  These children need and deserve families.

The international adoption journey is hard.  While I haven't done it myself, I've talked to other families, I've seen them frantically fundraising.  And I know that adoption is a journey of faith.  And until, or even if, I am able to join them on a similar journey, I will support these families as much as possible.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.  Hebrews 11:1


  1. We're just starting out on our international adoption and it's already overwhelming at times. But I LOVE your verse, because it truly defines this adoption process for me. I have to be sure of what I hope for, and certain of what I don't yet daughter.

    Thank you for this reminder today<3

  2. This was the day we drove to the state capitol thinking we could get all of our documents apostilled..this was the day we failed... I am so sorry I missed this...but I am so glad I found it just now. What a blessing you are...

  3. Is this little one just the sweetest? I so can't wait for Renee and her family to get her home to be loved upon.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what is on your mind.
