Meet Baylor

Hello there! My name is Baylor, and welcome to the place where I attempt to write to sort through all that the Lord is doing as He works in my life. I am a daughter of the Most High God, wife to the man God created just for me, mom to Bradley and Asher and would-be writer if there was enough time. I have been and continue to be amazed by God's great grace and love in my life: He has adopted me as His own through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ. But the life I am living is not the one I planned. God is writing an incredible story. Right now I only see part of it, and it isn't always easy, but I know that my God is good. And so this season (ok, every season) of my life is an unparalleled exercise in faith.

Daisy: hiker, avid reader, lover of yoga and my best girl. 
Right now, we are in the midst of another adoption journey, this time to China! We are striving to honor and follow this glorious calling on our lives. What a deep privilege it is so walk this road. Most certainly this path has deepened my faith and trust in God beyond what this feeble human mind could have ever thought possible. It is my humble prayer that somehow our family's life would only exist to reflect glory back to our gracious Heavenly Father and that we would end this race in His glorious presence. And we know that this is where God is leading us: to the place where His glory will shine like the sun and we will see what  He has seen all along.

This place exists to chronicle our journey and, hopefully, point others to the goodness of the Gospel along the way. I am not perfect in this process, and I promise to try my best to always be transparent with you here. God is continually at work in my life, my heart and my soul, sanctifying me, teaching me, refining me. I want to share these things with you in the hope that the truth that no one is sufficient on his or her own will be made evident. We all need the grace, mercy and redemption offered through Jesus Christ. I will always fall short, especially in this incredibly difficult season God has called us to, but God's plan can be made perfect in spite of our sin and shortcomings, and I am beyond excited to watch the Lord do His thing in our lives.

Seeing our son's face for the first time.

With love,
