“Adoption had been part of our plans for a long time. When we finally embarked on the journey, God took us down an unexpected road of older child adoption.”
After a year of preparation for adoption, Amy Watson and her husband traveled to Ethiopia to meet their son and daughter.
Their friend Kirk Weimer gave them a little advice as they began their journey as the parents of two older kids: “You’ll enjoy it for a while and then it’s gonna get hard, and then it’s gonna get harder, and then it’s gonna get really hard . . .and then you’ll be like, “What did we just do?” and then you’ll turn a corner and it’ll get better and it’ll get better and then you won’t be able to imagine life any other way.”
