For those who aren’t on Facebook I wanted to share what I posted yesterday morning:
Yesterday was an unbelievable day of celebration for our family as we had the joy of participating as six of our sweet pile were baptized. Each wrote their own powerful testimony, some sharing very vulnerable things of their pre-coming home days and then how they came to meet Jesus as their Savior and friend. We are thankful for their desire to please the Lord in this act of obedience. A friend videoed it and shared it with us.
It will definitely go down in our family history as one of our most joyous and sweetest days ever. We love you Jubilee, Johnny, Nehemiah, Isaiah, Elizabeth and Elijah and make no mistake – although our hearts ache that what brought you home meant abandonment, loss and trauma, we are so thankful God brought you to us and that He is redeeming your days. We are forever grateful you are ours for forever!!
Friends, watch and see for yourselves what an amazing pile of treasures He has brought us – He has been astoundingly faithful to our family. Rumor has it that there was not a dry eye in the service.

Our family is far from perfect as we have worked through many struggles. However, God in His infinite mercy, grace and generous love continues to work in our family. We are forever grateful for His astounding faithfulness!
