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.

Mothers Day

                                                                                                                                                               Mothers Day Mothers day, just the mention of it makes us reflect on and reassess our lives.   So what does a real life, good Mother look like. I believe God's vision for Mothers is to love....  Agape Love.  Life giving love that is born from a heart that gives.  She puts her children and others at a high priority.  It doesn't mean she's perfect.  If that were the criteria there would be no examples.  Some people were given  Mothers who had or have this kind of love.  A Mother who waits until everyone else has a full plate before she eats, a Mother who does everything she knows to do to bring us a good life.  As I reflect,  my Mother was far from perfect.....as a matter of fact, I didn't really feel love from her until after my Father died and our first son was born.  But listen, I also realize she gav
