Let's talk about adoption







Adoption is the method God chose to bring us (strangers) into His family as His own....




When we entered into the adoption process it was a complete mystery to me.  Would I be able to take this baby and love him as my own?  When a woman births her own child, most of the time, she also gives birth to a new deeper love within herself to nurture the baby.  But, how would I "feel" about someone else's child?  God, through many trials and tears brought Isaac into my life at a moment of great transition.  He had been working on me!  Reshaping me!  Most of the time when we view ourselves, we see a pretty okay human being.   Giving ourselves a whole lot of our attention.
God had to bring me to a place of seeing the deep needs of those around me and off my own perceived need. 


When Isaac was born, my husband was on a mission trip.  We had not been in Michigan very long, so I didn't know Detroit well at all.  God had taught me enough about the roads system that I could get there but not without fear.  I didn't have my mom, my husband, or any close friends.  Just a girl in labor and a baby on the way.....I was given the privilege of being in the delivery room at the time of birth...wow, I had never experienced that side of birth.  I had to be clothed from head to toe with hospital gowns and gloves because I had severe poison ivy covering my whole body and we couldn't risk giving it to the baby.  Birth is emotional, it is a miracle, it is a gift!  After Isaac was born he was handed to me!  I sat in the chair, tears streaming down my face thinking about this new little human.....handed to ME!  My heart broke that day.  I realized there are so many people in the world who need the opportunity to be born into the family of God, just as this little baby boy was born into ours.  Of course the family of God is so much more perfect than us, the Cubbison's,  but what a picture.

I fell in love that day in a whole new way.....thank you Lord.....I love that not so little guy now with my  whole heart.  People ask me how can you say you love strangers?  And I tell them it's all about Jesus and how much He loves us!


thank you Kim Kruchkow, for thinking about the Cubbisons!  Thank you Lord Jesus for your longuffering love you show to us.  Love Jackie

  3. I don't remember most of those things Kim, I came pretty late in her labor process. Really only there over an hour. And I stayed at the hospital in the nursery with Isaac the nights he remained in the hospital. But I I'm so thankful for all of your counseling with his mother, for this you will remain especially dear to our heart.

Mandisa - Overcomer (Lyric Video)

Calm down about things that don't matter,

Picking your battles wisely is a life quality that everyone should adopt. Ask your self:      why does this bother me      what will happen if I don't respond      will my opinion change the outcome      can I find a positive way to express the way this makes me I feel       When serious things do happen (and they will) over the top responses will only serve to hurt you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and  you will alienate people after time........... Discipline your thought life!   Don't allow every minor irritation make you irrational! Try focusing on  the positive and meditating on the blessings of God and watch the small problems fade from sight......... Philipians 4:8 Finally, brethren.....whatsoever things that are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
