Our Story Outloud

Don't mind me, just dusting off our little corner of the blog world over here...

Pardon my absence (again)!  I know you all are living in total suspence of our everyday life and I don't mean to disappoint.  I'm going to try to be better (again)...

But I did want to share a couple links about our adoption story for those of you who have asked and are interested.

We were featured in Hopetree Family Services' monthly newletter The Caring Times.  You can read our story here.

Also, Calvin and I were interviewed by a Hopetree representative, who put together a great little video that captures our story well. 

My only qualm with the whole things is that he chose to title it, "A Perfect Story," and it is not.  It is never God's plan for families to fail and fall apart.  But it is His Grace that brought Calvin to us for healing and new life.  We are all sinners, and so our stories are never perfect.  They are messy and broken and filled with hurt, but, thankfully, God's grace can cover all of that.  Other than that, it's a beautiful piece, and I'm so happy that is it Our Story.
