TWO YEARS AND COUNTING
As you might imagine, our girls (all three of them) are very athletic, and all grew up playing soccer from the time they were old enough to kick a ball (Michaela played for me at age 3). Grace and Addie both play on the U-10 team that I coach (a team that was undefeated this year). One of the coaches from another team — a good team (we tied them once and beat them by 1 the next time) was having a conversation with a buddy of his who, unbeknownst to him, we happen to attend church with. They got to talking about the number of adopted children in our church, and this coach said to Chris, “You wouldn’t happen to go to church with a family from Mountain View that has a couple of black girls would you?” When Chris answered in the affirmative, the opposing coach said with great enthusiasm, “Tell him that I want his girls to play on my team for the Show Me Games this summer“.
God has been good to us.
