Welcome to our blog! Thanks for joining and/or following along with us as we go through
this wonderful and scary journey of adoption to Taylor "Tay" Bryant
Murry. I guess the best place to start is from the beginning...
I am 25
years old (well, almost....June 4th), and my husband, Michael, is 27. We are
originally from south LA near Baton Rouge and moved to Birmingham, AL so I
could attend graduate school at UAB to become an occupational therapist. Long
story short, we fell in love with the area and stayed. Truth be told...we fell
in love with the Church at Brookhills and desired to become a part of this
faith family that treasures God's Word above all else and believes what it says
enough to forsake all else for the sake of Christ and the spread of His great
gospel to the ends of the earth. My husband and I are learning more and more
each week about the holy and wonderous character of Yahweh and long for our
hearts to reflect His in all aspects of our lives.
So, why
adoption? Oh, the many hurtful and frustrating questions/comments made by
well-meaning (and sometimes just downright nosey) people. Here are just a one
didn't you just have children of your own?"
Newsflash! God, by His great mercy and design, has chosen to place this
precious little boy in our family, and praise God he is ours! Fully Murry!
tangent ;) I better just stick with the topic at hand and save that blog for
another date ;)
anyway, here we are...midway through the adoption process of a little boy from
South Korea who is now nearing 16 months. He was born on the afternoon of
February 6, 2010 in a town in South Korea. We thank God he has had a healthy,
stable foster family throughout his short life since birth and are ready to
bring him to join his forever family.
yeah, a little about us. I am an occupational therapist who works with older
adults to regain independence after injury or debilitating illness. My husband
is sort of a renaissance man. He has been a fireman, a construction man, an
EMT, etc. etc. For now he is working some odds and ends jobs as we are
transitioning to prepare for what our lives will look like in a few months.
I guess
that is all the writing I need to do for one post. Feel free to ask questions.
Did not mean to scare anyone from asking adoption-related questions ;) Ask
anyone is still reading at this point, thanks for hanging with me. You might be
the only follower I have so far! Till next time...
how great is the love the Father has lavished upon us that we should be called
children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us
is that it did not know Him." (1 John 3:1)
