Family Story: Encouragement in the Waiting
Adoption is a journey full of joys and challenges. At America World, we get to see the beauty and the pain daily. We know that one of the hardest aspects of the journey is the waiting.
In this advent season where we remember that the world was waiting for Christ to be born and we now wait for His return, we want to encourage our families in the waiting of the adoption journey.
“I’ve sometimes even wondered why God would call us to this kind of process. Like, “Hello, God? We are trying to follow Your will over here. Can’t you just take it easy on us??” But sometimes God loves us too much to do that because He values our growth and our sanctification more than our comfort.” – Kayla Mackey
The Mackey family has graciously offered to share their experience of waiting over 5 years to bring home their child. We pray that you are encouraged by the specific ways in which the Mackey family has seen God’s faithfulness in their journey. Remember that He is faithful to you in your journey as well.
