congratulations Jon and Erin

When Jon and Erin announced their adoption plans to family and friends months ago, they began by saying "we are committed above all else not to our walk, but His."  


Not knowing how their story would unfold, I'm honored to say that as I watched them, they stuck to their commitment to walk out how God would choose to build their family. It took more than they thought they had in them...

Their adoption journey took more time than they originally thought it would.

It took more faith than they thought they had.

The road took more unexpected turns than they had planned.

And in the end, this sweet little one was more of a blessing than they could have ever imagined.


In describing their adoption journey, Erin says:

We have been left more tender, with more tears, more in love with each other, with more depth of community and friendship, with more prayers, more dependence on the Lord, more need to look up, and more need to hold onto Him. We have been left with more. Gifts that we would never have been brave enough to reach out and grab, yet now we can’t imagine life without them- without being closer to Him.


In the end, Jon and Erin have been blessed with more than they anticipated. God is good at giving out more. Especially when it comes in small packages like this one.
