We all have those people in our lives, you know the ones that do something inspirational that hits home with you. For some it’s a childhood hero like superman, batman, etc or an athlete. Well for us, we have had a few people that truly inspired us to think outside the box. I want to talk about one of them today 😉 And no they can’t fly, but in my opinion they can do something better…
Enter, the Redburn family! A few years back, Ash and Linc decided to do something a bit out of the ordinary. They chose to adopt from Ethiopia. I still remember when they decided to do that & the comments Ash told us she got from people.
Well, regardless of the resistance, they pushed onward and now have two awesome boys that were added to their family (Blake and Silas).
From the beginning we absolutely supported the Redburns, but I have to admit I didn’t “get it” until now….
When I saw this picture of our girls for the first time after we had said YES. I broke down. I mean God “punched me in the face” with emotions I didn’t think existed.
Since then I have thought about Ash & Linc’s journey ALOT. Would we have taken this recent step without having seen them do something amazing in their life?
The point is, when we choose to do something we don’t always think about who it might inspire to do something else. My sincere prayer with our blog WalkingByGrace.org is that our story inspires someone to get a little fed up with something and make a difference.
Does it have to be an adoption or moving to another country? Heck no! But there are a ton of kids, probably even your own nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers, or sisters that need to feel & know the love of Jesus.
