A glimpse of the love of God

This post was written by our of our families at Christ Community Chapel - pledges from this year's bike challenge will also go towards a fund to help CCC families with the adoption process.

Our family decided to pursue adoption after experiencing 7 miscarriages after the birth of our first child, Tiffany.  Tiffany was 12 years old when we began our international adoption journey.  We adopted our son, Noah, from South Korea in October, 2003 when he was just five months old.  We were not required to travel to Korea as the country provided personal escorts to bring Noah to us.  We met Noah for the first time in Detroit, Michigan.  Noah is a beautiful little boy with deep chocolate brown eyes, black hair and a contagious smile.  At the age of three, Noah was diagnosed with Autism.  Although this has brought some challenges into our life, we wouldn’t want him to be any different.  He is a gift from God for which we will be forever thankful and is a blessing to our family every single day.

                  Adoption is a very special experience that requires a lot of prayer and perseverance.  Although adoption can be expensive, God is always faithful in providing what is needed, especially when it is His will.  “…to look after orphans and widows in their distress…” (James 1:27).  Adopting Noah has given us a glimpse of the love God must have for us, to adopt us into His family.
