“Mom, why are you going to Uganda?” Zoie asked me with a frown. I gathered her in my arms and I said, “Baby, it’s a special trip for mommy to help kids with, jiggers in their feet, feel better and loved.” “But, I want you home with me.” she said firmly.

As a little girl, I dreamt of two things when it came to adoption. First, I dreamt of one day adopting a child so I could offer this special gift to a child–just as I had received. And secondly, to one day see a picture of my birth mother (especially her hips—to see what I was up against!) After many years of waiting, the second dream of seeing my birth mother’s picture transpired last Sunday…
Foster care scared me to death! My first reaction was, “no, there is no way I can do that. I can’t love a child like my own and then say good-bye, I’d get way too attached.” Well, now three years and twenty-three children later God has shown me over and over that what He calls you to, He equips you for. “I” can’t do any of this, but He can do miraculous things when we say yes to His call.

I am a Christ follower, wife, daughter, sister, non profit founder, blogger, orphan awareness advocate, business owner, speaker and mom. My greatest role has been the opportunity to walk this path to motherhood. I want to encourage other adoption families to never give up! I’m here to share the story of how my yes built a miracle family.
We are Mike and Lori Pierce and have 3 children, two homegrown boys and once spicy girl from India. Our story is not anything out of the ordinary, but it is our story. Back in 2010, I lost my job. It was a good part of our family income. At the same time God placed some very good friends in our lives who just happened to have 3 beautiful children from China.
“It would be impossible to fully understand the life and emotions of a child going through the foster care system, but this short narrative film portrays that saga in a poetic light, with brushes of fear, anger, sadness, and a tiny bit of hope.” If you are a foster parent, I hope this film validates you, encourages you and inspires you on your journey. Thank you foster parents for your radical hospitality!
