The Lee Family ~ 31 Families of HOPE: Day 19

Meet the Lee Family!: Joshua & Lisa Lee, Ava Sari and Gracelyn Bliss






Lisa, what first tugged on your heart about the Fatherless?

I first knew that adoption was going to be part of my life in high school. It was after a missions trip. There has be a tug on my heart.  Josh caught the passion over time. 


Tell us one unique thing about your family/ministry.

One unique thing about our family is that God blessed us with the care of a child with a rare brain disorder called Schizencephaly. 


What was one challenge either before, during or after your child(ren) came home?

One of the biggest challenges since finding out our youngest diagnosis is giving her every opportunity and still full focusing on our oldest. 


If you could tell a family that was considering adoption one bit of advice what would it be?

No matter what you face in this Journey God knows and is there. 


What verse was especially encouraging to you during your adoption journey?

Jeremiah 29:11. 


Share one blessing that has happened because you said YES and followed God on this journey.

The blessing that came though adoption was seeing how God opened our hearts to how hurting our world around us truly is. 


Thank you, Lee Family, for sharing HOPE with us here at Reaching Hearts!  Be sure to check out their family blog for more information about their adoption journey.
