To the Land of Their Birth
I remember the first time I read Isaiah 43:5-7. I was in a desperate state. My heart longed for another child, and I felt drawn to international adoption. In my research, I felt called to adopt from Korea, but my husband was not completely on board. I cried out to God, “If you do not want to change Bob’s heart, change mine.” My longing was a constant ache that floated just out of reach, and I feared that it would never go away. In desperation, I opened the Bible and read the first words that my eyes fell upon.
