congratulations Patrick and Lily

There are some stories I can't wait to share. Patrick and Lily's story is one of these.


From the start, Patrick and Lily have been passionate about growing their family through adoption. Confident of being called to add to their family this way, they always had a heart posture to say "yes" to God.

But for a season, it seemed all of their "yeses" turned up void. 
  
Although they went through a phase where there was doubt and even despair, there was never a time when their faith wasn't in the One who had called them to this path.

Their trust was not in the process.

Their trust was in Jesus who called them to adoption.

Their trust was in his timing for their family.

Their trust was that his personal promises to them as a couple would not turn up void, but ultimately would be "yes and amen."


So they pressed forward. Through hard spaces where it seemed like adoption might not work out for them. Through dark nights when their arms and crib were empty, waiting for a little one.

And then, this little guy entered the world. 


All the months waiting, all the nights longing, all the prayers prayed; in one instant God took their "yes" and turned them into a family.
