Tell us a little about yourself. I am a freelance writer, speaker, voiceover talent, and adoptive mom. I'm originally from Philadelphia. Now I live outside of Philadelphia with my husband and son.
What was your motivation behind this project? Prayer has always been important to me. I turned to God in prayer during our infertility, and I had planned to pray through a pregnancy if that had been God's plan. While adopting our son from Russia, we experienced painful delays and obstacles, such as increased fees and additional paperwork. At a particularly low point in the adoption process, I participated in an online prayer vigil that directed me to pray for very specific aspects of adoption from government officials to waiting children. I realized the power of prayer specifically in adoption and saw the need to help other families pray through their adoptions as well.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope families gain strength and encouragement from Praying Through Your Adoption.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was especially overwhelmed by the amount of transparency and support I received from the adoption community. The families featured in the book, in particular, poured out their hearts and souls. For some, telling their stories was pure celebration and thanksgiving to God. For others, it was probably a means for healing. I'm eternally grateful, and I think the readers will be, too.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: With over 143 million orphans across the globe, I would love to see more families consider adoption. But I deeply respect the person who for whatever reason. decides adoption is not right for them. I hope they would still consider providing prayer support and perhaps even financial support to families pursuing adoption.
