Our Family Story

On purpose…

“Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you.  Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you.” Jer 1:5

I want our girl to know this and life in this confidence – that before she was formed in her mother’s womb, the Lord knew her.  Was making plans for her.  Knew that one day she’d be our daughter.

I’ve been very humbled this week as I’ve worked on over 30+ ornaments representing at least 8 different countries.

India. China. Africa. Ukraine. Korea. Costa Rica. Columbia. Russia. and so the list continues.


What started as a simple ornament exchange project for my good friend who has just started the adoption process has now become a fundraiser which has also become for me a prayer concert. (by the way, the ornament orders are over on Monday! order yours by emailing me at beccaleetaylor@gmail.com!)  I’m humbled and encouraged by the folks buying these ornaments, by the folks who are loving on orphans and praying for orphans and wanting to encourage families adopting.  Because y’all, it isn’t the easy road.  But there are so many families out there who believe the verse above – that these incredible children all over the world were born on purpose.  I can’t wait to help point our girl to the God who makes this purpose, and adventure with Him happen.
