Our Children Came After a 12 Year Wait
September 28, 2021
“They overcame by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.” Revelation 12:11
Here is part of a letter I wrote in October 2011: “We appreciate so much that you have taken the time to view our adoption profile, and hopefully you will get to know us better through it. We know, and are continually learning, that we can never fully understand or imagine the emotions that you are feeling at this moment. We pray that you have the faith that you need to find the right family – one who will love and share in the blessing of this gift of life. My husband and I have known each other for almost fourteen years, having met through a mutual friend. We were married in October of 1999, and recently celebrated our 12-year wedding anniversary by enjoying a vacation to Arizona.”
If you could not tell from this letter, Chuck and I were experiencing infertility for 12 years. In fact, even though we were married in 1999, by the year 2011 we still had no children. We began our adoption journey in 2009. And Jeremy (God’s appointed one, to raise up and encourage like God), our son, was born in November 2012. Ashlynn (To dream like God), our daughter, was born in August of 2014. May the power of Jesus be released through our testimony. Great is thy Faithfulness!
