There are many couples adopting at our church. It is amazing to see how the Lord has given them hearts that long to have children from all over the world. Some here in Louisville, some from other states, and some from across the world.
Yesterday we had the privilege of welcoming a couple and their 2 babies. This is a homecoming that has been many years in the making. They have had heartache after heartache but have continued strong in their faith and in their pursuit of their children.
Many from our church gathered at the airport to meet these two babies and celebrate with their parents. What a joy it was to see the excitement in everyone as they walked into view. There was such a crowd that many people were asking what all the commotion was about (bet they were shocked that so many people were there for two adopted babies). Thankfully the airport staff didn't have to kick us out for the rowdiness.
I put together a little video of the time at the airport. I really wish I knew more about making videos because I pretty much have no knowledge in that field. When they walked in everyone cheered like crazy and then broke out in singing the doxology. It was glorious. I sadly didn't know how to turn down the other song to let that part be heard. So just imagine it:)
