Makes Me Wonder What I'm Doing With My Life...
Have all of you cried through Extreme Home Makeover's episode where they built a new home for the Beach Family?
If you love adoption, or are learning to love adoption don't miss this show! You'll be inspired.
Noel Piper mentioned on her blog...
One caveat: Adoptive parents, we have to grit our teeth and bear it when there are several mentions of the Beaches’ “own” children and adopted children–not by the Beaches, though. I put my arm around Talitha and said, “You are my own child.”
I so feel what Noel is saying. The first time the EHM people fumbled that adoption terminology I literally think an audible growl came out of my body. Just the mama bear coming out, I guess.
Be blessed as you watch this sweet family! I kept thinking about how crazy the Beach family must be to have adopted all of those kids. Then I'd remind myself that what the Beach family is doing is only crazy if this kingdom is all that matters. How I want to live for heaven! Jesus, help my unbelief!
Here's the link to the first part of the episode. The second part will pop up automatically.
I bet these won't be available for long. I think there are only a few weeks worth of episodes online.
Make sure you have tissues. I watched it with my boys and cried all the way through this show. It's one of those things you watch...and cry...and then that one event causes you to rethink your entire life. There will probably be more tears during the "rethinking" part. Just a warning.
Did I tell you all that I got a spray tan this weekend for a wedding?
I think I only shared that on facebook.
Well...as you watch EHM...when you see Tye...that's what I looked like on Friday.
I need to write about that ultra weird experience.
