I have worked with Amber’s mom (Dena) for most of the last 12 years, so I have been able to follow along with the amazing life of her daughter and family.
When Dena told me Amber and Nathan were about to begin another adoption process, it did and didn’t surprise me. Three of their 4 children are adopted, and I know how big their hearts are, and how strong their faith is. However; I had followed along with their most recent adoption of Anna Gray from the Ukraine and watched how long, strenuous, and expensive it was. Which led me to ask….”Really? Another one? China?”
Dena then told me that Amber’s response to that had been “Mom, I put leftovers in the refrigerator every night.”
Leftovers. It was that simple.
I truly believe most people have a desire to make a difference in the world, but it can be overwhelming trying to decide what to do, who to do it for, etc. and simply helping one child doesn’t seem like much. Think about it, though. Giving this one boy a chance at a loving family changes HIS world. Totally. Completely.
