(embracing the camera here)

this sweet sweet boy has been apart of our family for 4 months now. praise the Lord!
He's been so good to amos to set his lonely heart in our family. he's not alone. 
He's been so good to us to remind us of the goodness of His gospel & grace through this little one's life. 
we rejoice in all He's done for us. thank the Lord that He never gives up on us & has much more to teach the whole barker family through our adoption of amos. 
(read the things the Lord has been teaching me herehere & here.)
-----------------
we've finally put together our "gotcha video" for amos.
please enjoy & spread the word to friends & family who might be encouraged by the grace of our Father in our family.

This video is so touching, it made me cry. Just to see his little head on your shoulder and to think about how beautiful adoption is...most of all how God has opened his arms to us and welcomed us into his family as we have faith in Christ...so, so precious. Thank you for sharing this. :)

The video is not showing up for me--but I adore the picture of the two of you with all that lovely light and joy on your faces.

Just saw this for the first time. I've been a little sicky and internet MIA for the past 2 months.

LOVE IT and I was weeping! So encouraged and so thankful to the Lord for what He has given your family. I can't wait until He takes us on that journey too.
