Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

I mentioned a picture of a family on Thursday, 11/13. This is the email I received from Diane about her family and their family picture follows.

Chris,

I was driving home from a counseling appointment today with three of my adopted children while listening to your show. I am usually teaching my teens in the afternoon and don't get to hear your show. I decided it was a God moment that I heard the announcement about adoption on the show for tomorrow and decided to write to you.

I'm sure you have many emails to read, so I will try to be brief. My husband and I have adopted 11 children domestically here in the Cleveland, OH area. Adoption is truly a calling. There are many blessings and we hope and pray that our children will all leave our home ready to love, honor and serve the Lord - that is our goal. I believe that is why they were placed with us. It is challenging for sure and many days are uphill, but, when we see a glimmer of hope, a forward step in the bonding process instead of two steps back, we are encouraged to forge ahead. We have learned to trust in the Lord each and every day.

Some days I feel as if I am floating in the "Sea of Sadness," thinking that I may never get through the difficulties in their lives. But, one day, one of my friends, who struggles with a difficult illness said she was "floating on the ocean of God's
mercy". I decided that I needed to climb out of the sea into the mercy boat! On our own, my husband and I cannot "save" them. That is God's job. We can however, plant many seeds that start them on the right path to Him.

Sincerely,

Diane
