We're at an adoption conference

I'm blogging from the Summit VI conference by the Christian Alliance for Orphans (http://www.christian-alliance-for-orphans.org/)It has been an incredible time! The praise and worship time, the fellowship with other adoptive families, and learning about practical ways any and every person can care for orphans worldwide has refreshed and encouraged us. Yes, all 11 of us went, from Mom and Dad down to Princess Bink, and we feel extremely blessed to have this opportunity.

One great reminder we have had from many speakers is how adoption is a picture of the gospel and how God has adopted believers through Jesus Christ so that we can now call the God of the universe "Father"! Thank you Jesus!
