One year ago today, our beautiful baby boy came into our lives and changed us forever. The celebration of "Gotcha Day" is very special to adoptive families. It's a chance to reflect on what every year brings and to look back with joy at that special day that our children came into their 'forever family'. We are simply in awe of what we've seen in this last year. Being witness to the physical, emotional and developmental transformation of our son has been like watching a miracle unfold before our eyes. 365 days later, Izaiah is a healthy, thriving and infectiously happy little boy. All the praise and glory to our Lord and Savior, without Whom none of this would have ever happened. It is from Him that all good and perfect gifts come. We now turn our attention to guiding our children to know, love and fear their eternal Father, who saw fit to place them into our care that they might find all of their meaning and identity in Him.
Happy Gotcha Day Izaiah Eugene. Our hearts melt with love for you.

If the most terrifying news in the world is that we have fallen under the condemnation of our Creator and that He is bound by His own righteous character to preserve the worth of His glory by pouring out His wrath on our sin…
…Then the best news in all the world (the gospel!) is that God has decreed a way of salvation that also upholds the worth of His glory, the honor of His Son, and the eternal salvation of His elect. He has given His Son to die for sinners and to conquer their death by His own resurrection.
