Titus Task 5K and Fun Run: This Saturday!

Want to know something about me that not many people know.... not even some people who are really, really close to me? I love adoption. I need to make one of the those t-shirts like the I (HEART) NY shirts, except replace the NY with ADOPTION. That's me, friends. I (HEART)ADOPTION.

I believe adoption is one of the most vivid human pictures of the gospel. God has taken us as His own children and made us a permanent part of His forever family. It gives me chills every time I think about believers demonstrating that aspect of God's love to a watching world through adoption. Not to mention what a life-changing gift it is to the adopted child. Simply beautiful. And I sure hope that there is or will be a child somewhere out in our great big world that God intends for Lucas and I to adopt someday.

So, blogworld, now you know something new about me. :-)

If you live in or around Siloam Springs and want to support families who are pursuing domestic and/or international adoptions, take a little time out of your Saturday (Oct. 10) and come support the Titus Task event in downtown Siloam Springs. There will be a 5K race and a 1 Mile Fun Run, along with lots of fun stuff for your family to do (music, inflatables, food, professional photos, etc.).

Click here for more information. Lucas and I and the kids will be there: hope to see you there, too!
