We had the perfect marriage; a second marriage for both of us, and we had both learned so much from our prior experiences. And then one day, at nearly our 3 year wedding anniversary, my husband called and said "I have to tell you something...
My story is one of abandonment, adoption, and a 30 plus year search for my birth parents. I was an innocent baby removed from my mother’s womb, placed in a hospital nursery and left alone in waiting for someone to claim me.
These lessons I have learned have also been instilled in the children I have helped raise. I have experienced true life-change. I am far from perfect but I believe I have the steadiest of foundations to stand upon.
I am so grateful for the opportunity I was given. I’ve learned that I cannot do things on my own. I need God’s help. I am happier, more hopeful and I see the world in a brighter light. The happiness that I thought I would never achieve has been given to me through him.
Even though we were disappointed in the decision to close Keller, we ultimately saw God’s bigger plan not just for CT but for us as well. We would define this as a life changing moment when that truth sank into our hearts.
When I finally pleaded to God to remove me from my situation, at my lowest point, he met me where I was. My identity became rooted in my relationship with Christ and what he thinks about me, not what others think about me.
I keep drawing nearer & nearer to him as each day passes. I know that he is working this thing called life all around us... he brought me & my family to CrossTimbers & I am so happy he did. I see him placing people in my life who I cherish so much...
