We wanted to share a little more of our adoption journey with you this Christmas and how the long wait has impacted us.
Our church has been doing a four week series called Wish List focused on the question: What if God has a wish list for us this Christmas? Each week has looked at one of the titles the coming Savior is given in Isaiah 9:6: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, & Prince of Peace and asked what would it look like to receive that gift this Christmas.
To go with each message, our church has captured the story of a member of our community that focuses on the theme each week. Andrea and I were asked to share our journey of choosing peace while we have been waiting for our son. Here is a link to the video of our story: https://db.tt/HYfKXYdB
You can hear our pastor's entire message on the Prince of Peace here: http://www.wearemission.
We are grateful for your support and encouragement as we have journeyed towards our son! You have helped us to release our anxieties and find peace in this process. We hope and pray that this year you too may find peace no matter what challenges you may be facing.
Mark & Andrea
