Today I am introducing Kim Franks and her beautiful family!

We met under the most conflicting circumstances. I felt wholeheartedly felt we were¬†to adopt Will Perry’s foster brother, Greyson from Shepherd’s Field and were working on all the adoption paperwork when his file was released and matched with another family.

Can you imagine becoming the closest of friends with the other mom?

Here she is. Kim, one of my closest friends in the world and Grey’s mom.

Jesus is the reason for our friendship!

I SURE hope you have followed as she posted to A Beautiful Symphony Podcast Instagram this week. Her photos and heart felt words were truth, salt, and light. Please go back and read each post if you haven’t done so. Follow our IG page too!

f you have ever thought about adoption in any capacity, Kim is surely your go to adoptive mom: non-special needs, older adoption, special needs adoption, Down’s adoption. She has a wealth of wisdom to share! You can find her on Facebook Kim Hensley Franks and kimrfranks Instagram page. She also blogs occasionally at Shouts of Joy.

Kim’s last post for the week:

I’m thankful to Sharon for allowing me to share our story this week. It has been such a blessing reflecting back through the years and seeing God’s hand each and every time. Truly, it has brought joy to share a part of each child’s story. As I close this entire week of sharing, I would love to give you a small glimpse into the hearts of my older two…Kailey and Brady. These two have walked this adoption journey with us from the beginning. They’ve cried with us, prayed hard with us, and became discouraged at times with us… AND… these two also saw the hand of an Almighty God with us!! Both of them love their siblings deeply. Both of them have an authentic concern and love for all orphans around the world. They have both served (and currently serving) on mission opportunities to care for the Fatherless. I can’t wait to see what the Lord does with that passion within both of them. God changed all of us when He called us on this journey…me, Greg, Kailey and Brady. Praise Him that we did not miss this…and I pray we are always obedient to do whatever He says and to go wherever He sends… regardless of the cost. Matthew 25:35-36
