Kids Say the Darndest Things

Yesterday, our pastor at Wake Cross Roads Baptist Church, Bill Bowyer, delivered a sermon on the church’s role in adoption and what God’s word says about adoption.  It was a great sermon (listen to it here) and one that meant a lot to our family as we have explored these topics during the past several months and come to a firm understanding that, as Christians, we are called to care for the orphans and widows.

We’ve talked with Anna and Ryan a lot since November about adoption, our calling to adopt and what it means for our family.  And while Ryan is a little too young at this point to truly be able to understand what adoption is all about, Anna has a firm grasp on it.  In fact, she’s very excited about it — when we first shared with her our decision, her first reaction was “wow! Can we get bunk beds and share a room?”  What a great perspective from a five year old!

So, yesterday afternoon, we took a few minutes to interview Anna on camera about orphans and adoption.  As the old TV show reminded us, Kids Say the Darndest Things! Enjoy!
