In this house, we experienced God’s grace. We experienced the highest highs and lowest lows of our international adoption, we were called by Jayden’s birth mom and brought home Milo Jayden two weeks later, we nervously committed to an overly friendly mutt dog, and we cried so hard and laughed harder. In this house, I experienced months too long of loneliness, I got the “perfect” job, and I nervously invited new friends into my home. I experienced the worst migraine of my life and came back three days later after brain surgery, unsteady of my feet. We grew closer to each other, and we pushed each other closer to God. We pursued God willingly and sometimes begrudgingly. In this house, we experienced God’s mercy.
