Stuart and I went to dinner with some friends, one of the couples that was there is also adopting a baby from Ethiopia and she told me about a book that changed her life. She said, you must read this book "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan. I said you are not going to believe this but I have that book at home. It was a gift and I can't remember who gave it to me but I know I have that book. So that night I came home found the book and started reading. All I can say is "AMAZING!" Everyone has to read this book. This morning I went to his website to learn more about the author and I found this video that I loved. I think it explains a lot of what Stuart and I are trying to change about our lives. We have gotten a lot of weird looks and negative responses in regards to our adoption. Questions like Why would you choose to adopt when you have such a wonderful family already? What if doesn't go well? What if the child has issues? To be quite honest we thought of all of those questions too and the answer to those questions is because GOD wants us too! He has made our path very clear and the reason I know that is that we have such peace about our decision. We don't want to live safe anymore. We want to jump out of the bubble that we live in and live "Crazy for God". Our life on this earth is so short in comparison to eternity. Let's stand on the balance beam of life and JUMP! This journey is bigger that the adoption of a child. We are just getting started. Stay tuned. Please watch this video and get crazy with us! Crazy Love!
