"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Seble's Story Book

My sister Kelly, who is also adopted (from the US) made this wonderful book for Seble for her first birthday. It was the best gift ever and she put SO much work and detail into it-it is absolutely beautiful! It is taken from the wonderful story of Ruth & Naomi in the Bible and of REDEMPTION and ties it into adoption. My sister is actually going to be making these books and selling them on Etsy for adoptive families-she will change paper color based on adoptive child's nationality and customize the story as much as possible for each child's story. If you are interested, you can contact her at this email:

  1. I just found your blog through the AGCI listserv. We are a waiting family and this book is ABSOLUTELY breathtaking beautiful! Your sister Kelly...what a creative and loving woman. We don't have a name or face yet and we're in the 60's for a boy and 80's for a girl, but I think I am going to have to order one of these special books when the time comes. Our little bundle of joy will be our first child.

    Thank you for sharing on the AGCI listserve!

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
