My Journey as a Foster and Adoptive Parent.... 12 kids in 12 years.
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
I was instant messaging Kari via Facebook this morning and we were talking about how sometimes it's not really about our kids but it is about us becoming better people through figuring out what to do with our kids and the strength it brings enduring the trials we face. She said that a fellow adoptive mom -- you know who you are -- refers to us as "refined" parents. Couldn't help but have the old song pop to my mind "Refiner's Fire" by Steve Green. I told her that she should blog it. She told me to because she's too tired.
When I was googling it to put the YouTube here I ran across this song, which I also love.
So here are both of them -- a gift from Kari and I to you -- if any of you share our faith and see how this applies.
