A Baby From Jordan

Yesterday we went to a wedding for a good friend of ours. The groom was adopted when he was younger, something we never remember because he's just one of the family. We forgot until yesterday that is at his wedding ceremony.

Apparently many moons ago, his parents didn't think they could have a child. So the priest from their church was on a mission trip in Jordan and found our friend K. The priest said he knew exactly where he belonged and so began the adoption process for our friend K and his parents. Not long after he was born, K's parents had a biological son about about 10 years later a biological daughter. As I said before, other than the fact that K doesn't look too much like the rest of the rest of his family, we all kind of forget the fact that he's adopted. That is until yesterday...the priest that found K and brought him to his parents where he became a great friend of ours and everyone else's, was the priest that married him yesterday!!! It was really one of the best wedding ceremonies I've been to, it was very personal and entertaining and the priest kept everyone's attention. We all really thought it was such a neat and moving story (almost everyone in the pews were near tears including the guys) that I wanted to share with you all. Congrats to K & T! Here's to many years of happiness!
