This video story was first shared on the blog of Grace Polaris Church in Columbus, Ohio (Mike Yoder, lead pastor), then featured in the GraceConnect eNews last week. You might have read about Jared and Sarai on this site earlier this year, in another story from the GraceConnect eNews.
Several months ago, Jared and Sarai Hathaway, members of Grace Polaris Church, founders of foster care ministry Harbor 30:1, were told of a young girl pursuing an abortion. The Hathaways had a heart for parentless children already, and they knew they had to do something. Jared and Sarai met with the young woman and spoke into her life, helping her come to the decision to put the baby up for adoption.
God made it clear to Jared and Sarai that they should be the ones to adopt this baby and give the child a loving home. On September 8, baby Ella was born and introduced to her new parents. Check out this video made by Sarai that chronicles this incredibly precious moment in their lives.
