We have been asked to share our adoption stories, so I thought I would share mine. At the time I adopted my son, there were only two states which allowed single adoptions, Oregon being one of them. I was the sixth person in Oregon allowed to adopt under this new law, so I am somewhat of a pioneer in the field of single adoptions.
I didn't know how to get a picture up here, but I'm highlighting three posts which tell of my adoption story. There are gobs of pictures.
You might be interested in knowing the baby I adopted is now 47, is a beloved pastor, husband and daddy. Isn't the Lord good?? We had some rough post high school years, but the Lord restored the boy and he is a testimony to the faithfulness of the Lord. Also from him came my darling grandchildren, Elliot (named after Jim Elliot) and Molly--now 19 and 17!
Our home was full of children from the foster care system, as well as a later adopted Korean little girlie, and two foster kids who stuck with us until they were on their own, so we consider them part of the adopted family.
Its been a busy life and now at age 80 its slowing down. I miss the hustle and bustle we once lived in!!
