Reclaiming Adoption

The posts have been sparse over the last months because lots of great things have been happening. Our 2010 Together for Adoption National Conference went beyond our expectations and since then we have been following up with folks and working hard on our upcoming book. It is entitled ‘Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father’ published by Cruciform Press. It is set to release January 1, 2011.

Goodbye 2008

Goodbye 2008

This past year has been a good year. Lots of things to thank God for and lots to look forward to in 2009. Here are a few highlights of 2008 that come to mind:

There is much more that I could list but I will end here. I am off to spend the rest of the day with my family.

Have a wonderful and joy-filled New Years!
