Teyolla And Keyolla's Biological Mom, Rosalie

Some of you have been curious to see a picture of Teyolla and Keyolla's biological mom. Her name is Rosalie. We pray for her every night, that the Lord would reveal His great love for her and that she would feel hope in her life. My brother Terry and his wife Amy, took in our twins (before we adopted them) and their siblings, when they had been abandoned. They gave them a safe home, food and love. They also taught them about Jesus' love. It's wonderful that Teyolla and Keyolla's siblings and one cousin are all in the family!

We are one of those families who have chosen open adoptions, meaning that we keep in touch with our adopted children's mothers. We send them birthday packages, as well as Christmas and Mother's Day presents and cards. The girls call their moms and tell them that we are praying for them, and they update them on what's going on in their lives. We also send them new pictures of our girls several times a year. Derek and I feel that it's important to not cut off contact between our children and their biological moms. We know there are some situations where this would not be a healthy thing and we don't assume that all parents who've adopted can do this. We are thankful that this has worked for us.

God is good and so faithful! He's brought much healing to our adopted girl's lives. They are in a great place emotionally and spiritually and they've learned how to forgive, in a huge way! That in itself really accelerated the healing process!

Sorry to those of you who left a comment on this post and are wondering why it's not showing up! It's
a long story, not worth taking up your time. Long story short...the whole post and all the comments on this post got deleted accidentally, and when we re-posted it, we lost all your sweet comments! What a bummer! :(.

okay...well, i'll be the first to post a fresh new comment. What an amazing story of God's love in the girls' lives. May their mother truly KNOW the hope and peace that can only come from Jesus. May God be with you all as you continue to lift your arms to Him in obedience to His call. ...treasures in heaven await, to be sure.
