Welcome Home – Part 2

Here are a few more photos of our first day at home with Jeremiah. He did great. I wish you could see how excited the other kids were.

Considering Adoption?

This is one of the most powerful videos I have watched calling folks to consider adoption and take the next steps. Please watch it and consider passing it on to everyone you know that may be considering adoption (or maybe some who haven’t yet but…!)

What is said about remembering the moment you get the phone call is so beautiful and true it made me cry.

I remember the exact place on Interstate 85 we were at when Ansley from our adoption agency called and told us they had our children! I remember the excitement, the fear, the adrenaline rushing. I remember praying and knowing that this was God’s blessing of our first two children. We went to pick up S and K 3 days later and our lives have not been the same ever since!

Do you remember that moment? What was it like?

Why Adoption?

Steven and Maris Bush have been married for just over three years and recently started their family by adopting a precious baby boy they named August. She shares their adoption story and heart for the fatherless here.

“I truly believe that adoption as a whole is made up of many different parts. We can all take part in it, whether it be actually adopting, supporting a family that is or being an advocate for children around the world who need homes.”
