One Less...

I just saw this over on Amy's blog and I am overwhelmed with joy! When Amy learned that Matthew West was writing songs for his new album based on stories he was receiving from people, she let us all know how we could send in our own story. So we did. I sent Matthew West a short little note about our journey to bring Tucker home. Amy sent her story. And SO MANY other families sent in their adoption stories that he wrote a song called "One Less." All these little ones are in this song... it's written for them and because of them. God is so good!

LOOOOOVVVVE!!!!!!!!!!! Lauren, you know I felt called to adopt and I struggle with that every day because my husband does not. I'm not sure what that means for us, but I have found that I have developed this heart for the orphan....I want to make a difference but I don't know how now! I am praying about it though. And looking forward to the day when Tucker becomes ONE LESS!! Thanks so much for sharing that video!
