Beyond Crying

|säb| verb (sobbed, sob•bing) [intrans.] cry noisily, making loud convulsive gasps. Syn: weep, snivel, howl, bawl, blubber

That, my friends, is what both Tracy and I did when we first watched this:

I can't imagine not being touched to tears -- especially anyone who has been part of the adoption process.

Thanks for posting.

BTW, it was Thanksgiving Day, 1961 when I was born and given up by an 18-year-old unwed mother from Miami through Children's Home Society of Florida. From one Baptist family to another. I met my birth mother (the first and only time) and two half-siblings in 1994. It was an arranged meeting that I initiated with the help of the adoption agency. I was able to say "thank you", and she was able to see how her little boy turned out to be a pastor -- and she met her 'grandchildren'.

Kudos to Bethany Child Services and Mark Schultz for making the music video.

God bless you and your family.

Grace and life,

My wife and I cried too. Six months ago we were asked to take in a 16 month old boy. We go to court in a week to begin the process to try and get custody and then to adopt him. It has been a very busy and blessed six months for us (which is why I have not been by the blogs much). It is very different having such a young one in the house again. We feel like we are starting a family all over again. Our youngest before this will be 16 this week.

BTW, I would like to request prayer for my soon to be 16 year old. We go to see a neural surgeon on his birthday this week. When visiting ER a week ago for a football related injury, they discovered a cyst on his brain. It looks fairly large to us on the MRI though we will not know much about it until we see the surgeon. But I am thankful that our God is a great and marvelous God and it is in Him that we are trusting.
