Easter, forgiveness and reuniting

Today I leave on a train to pick up our child at the Ranch for Kids. We chose this weekend because it is Easter. At no other time, do we spend so much concentrated time thinking about Christ dying for OUR sins, about forgiveness and about reconciliation. As a family, we have been preparing for our reunion, by focusing on forgiveness and our own imperfections. We have great peace about bringing our child home and finally being the family that God intended when He placed our children on our hearts. This child has worked so hard to get to a place of being able to come home. We are proud!!

This has been a long, hard journey, but God has been gracious. We look forward to the future with great hope.

Happy Easter! May you all feel the blessing of God's forgiveness, through Jesus Christ.
