Fasten Your Sweet Belt In 2010, my daughter and I wrote this little book that has helped many people on their journey of receiving older children. I wrote it out of frustration that I knew so little when we brought home three older kids from Uganda. It’s a collection of stories, mostly of my mistakes.
Since that time, Agnes and I have spoken widely on this subject, and she has launched her own ministry of writing, speaking and mission trips. You can learn more about her journey at Jeremiah 29:11 Ministries.
Watch Here for TV about the book:
Matthew 18:5 I began blogging when God stole my heart for the orphan. I named my blog for the scripture “Whoever welcomes a little child welcomes me” ~ Matthew 18:5 I will never forget the first time I read this verse. It literally gripped my soul. If we welcome a child, we welcome Jesus himself. After I read these words, I understood that Jesus waits in the waiting child.
Some of my favorite posts are:
- About loss and waiting in adoption: My Bad Mood
- About how God completely broke our pride by making us BROKE and then rebuilt us how HE wanted us to be: 50 And Broke
- About how we learned to be faithful and God gave us a “free” son! The Free Gift
