Adoption story - Courtney and Mitchell

Oh, how I love this family!  They have a "one of a kind" adoption story where they truly had to surrender to the Lord and trust that His Plan was GOOD.  I may have spent more time on my knees in prayer for this family than any other, and recruited lots of other prayer warriors as well.

Here's a bit of their story.....

Adoption story -- Nicole (and Noah!)
