My Tender Hearted Boy......


This past week I had the opportunity to speak to our local MOPS group about my adoption experience- as an adopted child, an adoptive parent, and a child adopted into the Kingdom of God. It was such a great opportunity and I was so thankful for the experience. I pray God used something I said to speak to the wonderful ladies.

At the end of my presentation, I played the Chapman (Steven Curtis and Mary Beth) family's adoption story. If you have ever seen this video, you know at the end it includes SCC singing "When Love Takes You In" and it also includes the music video for this song. We noticed Caleb really watching the video, and at one time, his back was to us as he was completely engrossed in the song and video. When he turned around, he had tears rolling down his cheeks. I immediately asked him what was wrong, and he replied, "Sad." I asked him why he was sad, and he said, "Movie sad". We were in awe and I almost started crying myself! He was so touched by the video! I have been praying that God would give Caleb a compassionate heart and that he would love others the way God loves. Thank you Lord!
