As a full-ride scholarship recipient and Division 1 college athlete, Elizabeth was used to being self-reliant. If things didn’t happen fast enough, she would make them happen. That was, until she and Dan had their first special needs child, then felt God guiding them to adopt two more medically fragile children. She reached a point one day, through tears, when she told Dan, “I can’t do this by myself anymore.” Two days later, Dan gave notice that he was quitting his job to help Elizabeth at home with the kids. What’s happened since has been a faith journey that’s profoundly changed their lives.
