Reunions, Part III: Amy's family

When I travelled to Korea in April 2008 to bring home Joy, Dorothy (my friend and travel companion) had the honor of visiting an orphanage in the hills above the city of Pusan. (I'll tell you more about the orphanage in a future post.) Dorothy is also an adoptive mother and shares my heart for children. On our way back to the train station inPusan that day, she and I prayed that if it was God's will, He would find adoptive homes for some of the children we met.

A year later, we were thrilled to hear that one of the children who'd captured our hearts had been adopted by a Korean family. A few weeks before we travelled to Korea, we were happy to learn that her family wanted to meet us. Eastern scheduled our first visit on Monday October 18 immediately following our reunion with Hope's and Mercy's foster families.

This is a photo essay documenting the goodness of God in the lives of two adoptive families living on two different continents whose hearts are overwhelmed with the blessing of finding each other.

Her American name is "Amy" which in English means, "Beloved." These are days of wonder and grace, indeed.

Thanks again to Grandma the intrepid photographer who freed us to be 'in the moment' on our return visit to Korea, and to Amy's family for permission to share these pictures.
