Finding God's Message in The Face of Murder and Suicide

Finding God's Message in The Face of Murder and Suicide

I feel like I’ve stood close to death and evil twice in my life: when a family member tried to commit suicide, and more recently- when a loved one was murdered.

 I didn't walk into that radio station looking for a job.  I walked in there to talk about what God has called me to talk about: adoption and foster care.  I walked in there to bring awareness to Walk for the Waiting, and to start a conversation about the orphan crisis going on in our very own backyard.  And then, in walks God, opening exquisite doors like that's what He does or something.  

The Introduction: Part 2

The Introduction: Part 2

The woman who gave me life was finally in my childhood home, and I was at a loss of words and gutted of my tears.  Where do we even begin?  How do I try to recount the years of my life, and how do I respectfully ask the questions that haunted me so?  19 years of separation, basically a lifetime, stood between us and the foundation of our relationship. 

The Question

The Question

As you might have noticed, I’ve been asked a lot of questions about my experience with adoption.  It seems that this blog has become an outlet for answering those questions after years and years of thought.  I think one question I was asked that is probably the most important to answer is: “Why did they just give you away?”

Identity Crisis

Identity Crisis

My beautiful family was created through adoption - my older brother was adopted from South Korea, and I was adopted right here in the state of Arkansas.  We have both learned about true love through our adoption stories, even though they are quite different.  Without God's grace, I wouldn't be here to tell my story of how it all came full circle to reuniting with my biological family, almost 20 years later.
