Last Saturday Mark got to speak at a local Orphan Awareness Seminar at Vineyard Church in Peoria. It was all coordinated by Marianne – awesome mom to the awesome Jen.
Mark did an awesome job talking about God’s call to care for the orphan. Then Jen followed it up talking about their family’s story and how they are not extraordinary. They are perfectly ordinary.
That’s been playing over in my head since then. (Of course she said a bunch of other REALLY great stuff too.)
Then today I read this post over at Storing Up Treasures.
Adoptive parents are not to be idolized. We are human. We are broken and we do NOT have it all together.
We are ordinary.
