I'd strongly encourage you to visit Family Life Today and listen to their program for 9/26 and 9/27, as they interview Carolyn Twietmeyer and former NFL Lion (don't be prejudiced by the team! ) Luther Ellis and his wife Rebekah about their adoption journeys. My family and I were privileged to witness these interviews being recorded in April at the Christian Alliance for Orphans Orphan Care conference in Louisville KY.
As we listened to these interviews, we laughed, cried, and were deeply impressed by Carolyn and her husband Kiel's joyful readiness to obey God's call to care for the orphan. We were also touched by the humility of Luther and Rebekah and their evident love for each other. These interviews are worth listening to even if adoption isn't in your past or part of your future plans!
