Abandoned by her mother, 18-month-old Kacy was thin, covered with eczema, and unable to walk.
When the adoption agent began explaining Kacy's condition to some prospective parents, the husband interrupted her. "We'll take her!"
"But don't you want to see her first?"
"We'll take her sight unseen!"
That's how Kacy was adopted.
Years later, Kacy Terrill became a gifted speaker and often spoke about another adoption:
"When I came to God I was spiritually and emotionally needy," Kacy would say, "But, without hesitation--'sight unseen'-- my Heavenly Father adopted me into His family."
"God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure." Ephesians 1:5(NLT)
Let's rejoice today in our Heavenly adoption.
Kacy has gone to be with the Lord, but her message still brings joy to my heart. I am grateful that God had my path cross hers when we lived at Ft. Leavenworth, KS.
