Leah Schnyders "One of the biggest things you can do is show [adoptive families] a genuine interest in their family’s story." The Bradley Family "The Lord knew Kate and saw her from the very beginning. And in my own story—the Lord saw me.” Artem Smith "It was very emotional seeing God's parallel [in the devotional book] - how I was adopted, but he adopts his children in Christ." The Yates Family "The Lord has been so kind and faithful to us through the precious gift of this child." The Lambert Family “It is not the path we thought we would take, but God had a better plan—a plan much bigger than we could have ever seen coming.” The Smith Family “Because of our medical histories, we feared that China would not grant us approval to adopt a child.
