About a year ago my brother and sister-in-law made a bold move. God nudged their hearts open wide, and into the opening he put a dream of adoption. Then God brought a little girl from China to fill up that dream.

There have been risks, sacrifices, fears and tears along the way. But God has been faithful, and six months ago a beautiful little girl became part of the Peterson family in Marshalltown, Iowa.  Addy’s mom Valarie is my wife Karla’s sister.  On her Facebook page she posted an update – which I found to be a super compelling reminder to us all, not only of the joyous progress of one little girl, but of the life-changing power of love through adoption. Here is Val’s post:

Last week marked six months since we first met Addy and so much has changed! I (Valarie) compiled a list of lots of changes from then until now and want to share just a portion with you.

We have gone:

Thank you, God, for blessing our family in such a big way!
