Ep 103 God’s Redemption: A Story of Love, Loss, & Adoption with Lisa Robertson
“Occasionally weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the losses. Then wash your face. Trust God and embrace the life you have.” - John Piper
Today’s guest, Lisa Robertson is sharing her beautiful redemption story with us. Lisa lives in Ohio with her husband, biological daughter, and 3 adopted sons. She is the Executive Director of Hope Bridge, and organization that aids single moms, foster care & adoption, and aging out youth.
It’s apparent to see how God was preparing Lisa throughout her journey to step into her role at Hope Bridge. After getting pregnant early in her marriage and ending up having an emergency hysterectomy just days after giving birth to her daughter, the life Lisa thought she would have now seemed impossible. During recovery, she was faced with the reality that she may never be able to give her husband a son.
As Lisa shares about her journey through IVF, foster care, and adoption, you will see her beautiful redemption story unfold. Sometimes motherhood, and even our lives, end up looking differently than we had expected.. but in our obedience to God’s calling on our life, He is faithful to work all things out for our good.
