Meeting Sam and Eli

My phone buzzed early on Friday morning with a text message from our friend Sherra. They were on their way up to Nashville and would be traveling through Memphis and wanted to know if we wanted to meet up. Of course we did. We haven't met the twins yet.

One of the most amazing things that God allows us to do is to help build families through the miracle of adoption. A few years ago, Sherra stumbled upon our blog and commented that she would like to find out more about our experience.

Over time, Abbey and I had the opportunity to start helping with independent Taiwan adoptions. One of the first families we called was Sherra and David Williams. That conversation ended up with their adoption of Jack Everett.

The Williams came home wanting to go back. One of the unknowns for families who are totally reliant upon adoption to grow their families is how they will be able to continue after that first adoption. Will the country stay open, will the program work, etc. Abbey and I know this full well as we had to search for several agencies before we could do adoption number two.

So, when our Taiwan contact told us that the ministry was expecting twins, Abbey and I both thought of David and Sherra. The Taiwan ministry agreed and soon I contacted David and Sherra to see if they would be open to twins. They had a 9 month old at the time mind you. They were cautiously optimistic but ultimately said they definitely wanted to adopt these boys.

Things unfolded and the Williams were able to adopt Sam and Eli. That means that they have a crazy cute family as well.

We were thrilled to see them and catch up with them. They are doing wonderfully.

We are so blessed to know them.
