It’s a joy to be able to share my heart at No Hands But Ours every month. This post is special to me.  I don’t pretend to know everything about parenting or adoption, or parenting through adoption.  But there are some things I DO know…

This is what I know…

I know that time doesn’t heal all wounds.
I know that, sometimes, intentionally seeking out help is necessary.
I know looking different isn’t a bad thing.
I know that hearing a word of encouragement has more impact than I dreamed it could.

I know adoption can be hard.
I know adoption is a gift.
I know adoption isn’t for everyone.
I know caring for the orphan is sometimes hard, is always a gift, and is for everyone.

I know I can do things I never thought I could.
I know walking in obedience means being depending on God.
I know that He equips as He calls, and never leaves us stranded.
I know His mercies aren’t just new every morning, they are also fresh every hour and minute of every day.
