A God Story

From Together for Adoption:

Mark and Kristen Howerton tell their family’s stories of adoption. While in the process of adopting from Haiti, Kristen was in Haiti visiting their son when the earthquake hit. Their story is a God story. Let it be an encouragement to you that although we most often do not see God at work in our stories, He most certainly is.
