Adoption: A Picture of God's Grace

Close friends of mine expect soon to be adopting a baby from China that will add to their already-well-armed quiver. Shaohanna's Hope, an organization founded by Steven Curtis Chapman to encourage and assist in overseas adoption, has provided both inspiration and substantial financial assistance to my friends. The husband and father in this family not long ago brought to my attention this video of the Chapman family's experience. Although the video is obviously heart-warming, its greater impact on me was to remind me of the unconditional love and grace that God has so freely and richly bestowed on me.
