Some light-hearted, some poignant, some wise, and some simple, and a few mostly informational, here are some of my favorite adoption tweets from 2016.

Sean Palmer @seanpalmer I’m so grateful to the docs who worked tirelessly for years on our behalf!

  • Russell Moore @drmoore Every time I see all these stockings {photo of 7 Christmas stockings over a fireplace} I’m reminded of the doctor who told us we’d never have children. Ps:113:9
  • Keith Brenton @keith_brenton @seanpalmer @drmoore – And while I’m tickled for y’all, I’m grateful to the adoption agency and two birth moms who made it happen for us!
  • Sean Palmer @seanpalmer @keith_brenton Amen. I served on an adoption agency board. It’s beautiful. So many ways to make a family.

Appriciate Jihyo @twicetra Going through and seeing orphanages first hand is WHY I’m choosing to adopt. Those kids need homes, not more kids without.
