"Dads For Adoption"

Chuck here, I am guest posting for Kathy.  I have been thinking about posting my thoughts since our "Gotcha" moment.  I am overwhelmed.... In an awesome way!  This adoption has truly changed my life.  Now I know everyone just said.... Duh.  But the change I am speaking of is more than just another child in the house.  It's a God change.  I see life different.  Grace, Mercy, Love, Affection, Tenderness, .....  It's all different now.  My kids have changed, my wife has changed, and I have changed.  My walk with the Precious Father is changing.  It truly scares me to death to think I almost missed this.  I was the one with doubts, fears and what ifs....?  I want to say right here right now that there is nothing on this earth like a wife that hears the voice of God.  My wife heard God and it changed our life.   From the moment, December 28th 2009 ~ 4pm (in China), Kathy handed me Maggie it was like a light switch was flipped.  I saw it.  I know I am rambling....  The video below is good.  Coach "O" says exactly what I was going to say and its in a video.  To learn more about this family click here.

Chuck,
How refreshing to hear the experience from a man's perspective. Thank you for sharing. Isn't it amazing how God uses a child around the world to work on our hearts. Praise him for the miracle of adoption!

Thanks Chuck for giving us the dad's point of view of adoption. I do look forward to watching Gary those first moments with Gavin in his arms and enjoying his new son joining our family there in China.
