We have been forever changed by experiencing a faith-filled journey that first brought us our sweet Caitlin, then an adoption that ended in disappointment, and now one that placed us in the NICU with a sweet little baby boy. Never would we have chosen the disappointment and grief of losing children we had come to love and now worrying about the health of our new little addition, but God's plan has been to forever leave His mark of grace, brokenness, and freedom to obey even when we don’t understand. To Him be the glory for what He has done, and is doing, and will do!

With love and gratefulness to our Heavenly Father who has adopted us into His forever family, and to you, our family and friends,

Robert, Carlene and Caitlin Belue

Celebrating Adoption

‎7 years ago today, we met our sweet, tiny, 17-day old Caitlin (a gift from God) and brought her home! What a joy she is, and how many things I've learned about Jesus along the journey leading up to her adoption day, and still to this day! I'm so grateful to have been chosen by God for adoption, and for Him having chosen Caitlin for us. 
 "Come and see the works of God; He is awesome in His doing toward the sons of men...we went through fire and water but You brought us out to rich fulfillment (abundance)...come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for my soul." (Ps. 66) Happy Adoption Day, Caitlin!
