National Adoption Month Guest Post
With November being National Adoption Month, I have been thinking about how fortunate I am to witness the various adoption adventures of people I know. One of them comes from today’s guest blog post from my sister-in-Christ Kim Meyer of Relentless Women Warriors.
Kim and I went to the same elementary school together. She moved away, but through the power of social media, we have been able to reconnect. I have been following her story for a couple of years now and am prompted to pray for her – and her growing family. Her story of hope and trusting God, despite the obstacles they face, is one I want to share with each of you! I hope you are encouraged by their resiliency and faith and that you take time to pray for them in their current season.
Remaining Hopeful in Adoption – Kim’s Story
Our family began our adoption journey in September 2013 and like most, my husband Clayton and I had absolutely no idea the rollercoaster our family was stepping onto.
When we began, we were initially told that most families brought their children home from Haiti in 18-24 months. Very early into our journey, big changes were taking place within Haiti’s government, affecting the adoption process. Little did we know that those changes were going to add years to our timeline.
