“I just don’t have the heart for adoption”- famous last words by Becky Wickline.
I spoke these words to Patrick several years ago while we were at church listening to the testimony of a young couple going through the process of adopting their son from Africa. My husband agreed – we’re just not adoption people…..so we thought.
Several years later, our hearts are now completely broken for orphans and we are in the process of adopting from Haiti. How did we get here?
-We got a little bit uncomfortable with our very comfortable, spacious, material life. Surely we’re not here just to bless the blessed?
– I got somewhat obsessed with Jen Hatmaker’s book “7” (if you haven’t read it, it’s kind of a game changer, so be prepared)
– And finally through our faith, we believe God broke our heart for adoption.
The purpose of this “Famous Last Words” blog is to share our adoption story with our network of friends and family from across the country. We invite you to join us in this journey!
