Welcome to Choosing Joy!

“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.” – Henri Nouwen

I named this blog after my life motto, “Choose joy”, and I’m excited to share with you what choosing joy looks like in my life right now! I am beginning the process to adopt a sweet little girl whom I have loved deeply for many years. I invite you to join me in this journey through prayer and support as I follow God’s call to bring my daughter home!

Picture description: There is a photo at the top of the page of *Heidi and I on her 5th birthday. We are on our rooftop in India, and you can see the sunset behind us. I am holding *Heidi and wearing a green sari. Heidi is wearing a white dress with a pink sash and a matching pink bow. There is a white star covering her face.
