Welcome home, Amos!

January 30, 2010

Amos is home! We have followed Aaron Ivey’s story about adopting Amos from Haiti for some time now.

Aaron leads worship here at a church in Austin. Somewhere along the way in his 2+ year saga of adopting Amos, Aaron wrote “Amos’ Story” – a beautiful, aching song that you can find on his new album, Between the Beauty & Chaos. Check out the song and accompanying music video below!

Anyway, I stumbed upon the song “Amos’ Story” while we were waiting to adopt our son, Tai, from China last year. I can SO relate to every word. I took the song with me to China on my iPod, and it’s what I listened to right before we left the hotel room to go get our son on Gotcha Day. Still makes me cry when I hear the words.

Due to circumstances in Haiti after the earthquake, Amos received humanitarian parole and and he was allowed to come home last week – my husband and I cried as we watched the footage on the news of Aaron and his wife coming down the Austin airport escalator with Amos!

Welcome home, little guy! God is good!
