A Beautiful Way to Create a Family

“I knew I had to make a decision,” recalls Tidwell. “I sat down to pray and read the Bible, asking the Lord to once again give me clear direction. I opened a devotional book and read a section on trusting God. I then looked up the Bible passages referenced. The first one was in 2 Chronicles 16:8: 'Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand.' The next passage was Psalm 91:11: 'He will give His angels charge over me, to keep me in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear me up.' Upon reading these passages, I recalled my mental picture from January 2002 of putting my hand into God’s hand. I then watched the video I had taped while in Ethiopia, in which one of the children was singing the children’s hymn He’s got the Whole World in His Hands. I wept, realizing God’s calling for my life was to adopt, and I contacted the agency the next day. In April 2006, I traveled to Ethiopia to bring home my new daughter, T.J., age 11 and son, T.F., age 9.”
