Chosen to Adopt: My Life with (and without) God – Part VIII

Mary Evelyn says "Yay" by gnuru=

 

While at Ovid,

We were blessed to be a blessing.

Inspired by a book called Expecting Adam

We chose to adopt a child with Down Syndrome.

 

Within a few months,

We got a call from an agency in Albany

For an 8-week old boy we named

Caleb Ezra Anthony.

 

The church adored Caleb,

Lavishing him with affection.

He would raise his hands in praise,

And direct the people to sing with joy.

 

In time, we chose to be chosen again.

We flew to New Orleans for our BUFA girl –

Baby Up For Adoption, who became

Hannah Elizabeth Sarai.

Our ugly duckling soon to become

A beautiful swan.
