This is the POINT

At church on Sunday we were reminded why we are doing this whole adoption "thing." Did we want another child?-"yes" but why this way????? What is the point in adding to our family in this way?
A family in our church adopted a little girl from Russia 5 years ago. She is a beautiful little girl and everyone at our church knows who she is, she just has that type of personality. Sunday they came to church and announced that SHE had accepted Jesus into her heart the night before. How amazing is that? A little girl from Russia was brought into a Christian family through ADOPTION and now has a forever family here on Earth and HEAVEN.
As we are getting ready to meet our little girl in a couple of days, it was a wonderful reminder of the bigger picture.


  1. And what a fabulous point it is. I cannot think of a better one in the world than bettering God's kingdom.

  2. Right on, Ashlie! Isn't that exciting news!?! And the best part is that she won't be shy about sharing her faith with others. I can't wait to see what God does in and through her as she grows up!
    Blessings as you travel to rescue one more!
    Love, Mel

  3. AMEN to that!!!!! That is the HUGE BLESSING that NO ONE can ever take away!!! YES LORD!!!! Now if more could see it in this way!!!!!!!!!!! Praising God for this little girl's life- and being a part of HIS FAMILY!!! AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. That is so sweet! Praise the Lord!

  5. Adoption is a wonderful thing which everyone should experience. Have an amazing trip and I can't wait to hear all about it. I'll be thinking of you.
