Beauty from Ashes: York family story

Today we’d like to highlight the York family, whose children- Bo, Molly, and Steven, were adopted from China. Beth shares the following about their adoption of Steven, whose story is true evidence of God’s faithfulness. Steven stands today as living proof that God has still not finished writing his story. Beth writes:

He spent his first birthday recovering from major surgery in a hospital in China and they featured him on that hospital’s website. They shared about him going into septic shock and the three surgeries he had already had there. They used the word “resilient” to describe him.

Since then, his bravery and the miracles surrounding his life have been shared by a few more organizations. This week,, Boston Children’s Hospital was added to that list.

When people get to come alongside of him and take part in his life, particularly in the medical mountains he has climbed at such a young age, they get to witness God’s faithfulness. And in His faithfulness? This is where we always find beauty instead of ashes.

Praying his story, linked below, will give hope to just one person who needs it today. Additionally, be sure to check out of Summer of Hope campaign which makes advocacy, orphan care and adoption support possible.
