Providence :)

Niya and Serenity 🙂

Years ago my friend, Jan, and I met while fostering for the ‘agency’. We only saw each other occasionally at training, but God had something else in mind. As He moved my heart with The Alex Project, He was moving in Jan’s as well. Both of us, along with our friends Donna and Caryl, had long dry spells with no babies to minister to-which was part of the process that eventually led Jan (and the rest of us who followed) to foster for the state. Niya was Jan’s third placement- she was a newborn from another state with a heart problem that was going to require surgery. Jan and her husband Bill were uncertain about the medical situation, but were certain they were supposed to foster Niya. That was 6 years ago. Today, Niya is their daughter: a healthy happy little girl who loves to sing and dance and keep things in order! Jan and Bill had already raised two grown sons and were well into their 50’s when God laid on their hearts that Niya was to be the daughter they never had! Niya and Serenity are 11 months apart and go to the same school. What an incredible gift that God in His providence has not only brought them together, but is allowing Jan and I (and our husbands) to share the adoption experience and raise our daughters together.

  1. God’s way of working everything out is so amazing. What gorgeous girls! I LOVE the dresses they are both wearing in the first pic!

  2. Such beautiful girls, such precious gifts to your family. It is great they can grow up together, and you and Jan can share this journey together.

  3. Two lovely young ladies. I know they have blessed you so much.

    You’ve been heavy on my heart lately…court is approaching again if I recall…praying fervently for the Lords will to be done, and for His love and protection over E.
