God has placed some great men in my life, brothers who encourage me deeply as they trust Jesus, love their wives, and lead their families.
Several of them have adopted children, sometimes with disabilities, into their families.
None of them puts on a happy face or pretends it is easy. These are real men, understanding how weak they are and how big God is. I am deeply grateful for their examples.
Mark and his wife have a bunch of children! Julie writes beautifully about their experiences.
Martin commented earlier this week on my post regarding the birth of new baby how he has to fight for joy when hearing stories about adoptions with easy transitions.
Chris has written for this blog before, and his oldest boy is in the Sunday School my wife works in. I love seeing him at church as he wrangles his son, adopted without their knowing about his disabilities, to class.
And Greg, the author of Wrestling with an Angel, was recently asked five questions about the book and about adoption.
There are others I will remember after I post this.
God is kind to give us friends who point us to Jesus! We do not need to walk this path alone!
