A Providential Adoption Story

We have a relative named Joseph who comes from a long lines of Josephs. Joseph and Heidi have wanted a child for many years, and yesterday they became legal parents of their first child, a son. They leave in a couple of weeks to go pick him up from Ethiopia. His name in Ethiopia: Mumush Yosef. That’s right, the middle name that his birth mom gave him, in God’s providence, is Yosef.




Psalm 127:3 Behold, children are a gift of the LORD; The fruit of the womb is his reward.

Congratulations Joseph and Heidi and little Joseph VII!

I have heard adoptive moms of foreign babies say many times that they thank the Lord that the birth mothers of their babies didn’t have the option of getting an abortion.

Congratulations to your cousins! Life is indeed the greatest gift a woman can ever give her children, even if she chooses to place her child for adoption.
