Both girls had lived a journey of significant medical needs, but the support they received from their new family led the Jacksons to experience God’s miraculous work in multiple ways. But, most of all, the Jacksons have seen God work in their hearts, giving them courage to walk the journey He’s laid out for them.

Protecting Their Story While Telling His

January 24, 2018 rachelmiley
