We were blessed to dedicate Macie Faith on May 19, 2013 at our baby dedication service at church. It basically means that we come before our congregation to dedicate our baby to Jesus and raising her to know Him. I had been excited and thrilled to share our story of how God brought our precious girl to us, through our journey to adoption.
What a wonderful testimony of God's faithfulness to share with the rest of our church family!

It was really neat, we got to stand up there with two other families who have adopted from China! Here is one of the videos... This little girl's name is sooo significant. "Torah" for her old life and promise (Old Testament) and "Grace" for God's new covenant and promise.
