A few months ago I hosted a giveaway on the blog to benefit Children's Hopechest in Ethiopia and once of the donors was Jen Hatmaker. Jen is an author of several books and she's also an adoptive mother. Her family's struggle with the Ethiopian court system to adopt a 7 year old boy is known to many in the adoption community, but I myself hadn't read the full story until today. You HAVE to read Jen's latest post as it's both hilarious and heart wrenching at the same time.
It really speaks to me about God's love for His children and the continuous struggle to live a Christian life and follow His commands even when we think it's impossible, unreasonable, or that we won't last another day.
Their adoption story is one of redemption, mercy, and grace and luckily there's a happy ending. :)
