“I had a moment of vacuuming in the foyer, in December. That moment of vacuuming and praying for that fourth baby was the closest that I’ve ever felt to just knowing without a doubt God was saying, ‘You will have another baby. That baby’s not going to look a thing like the babies that you’ve already had.’ That was the clearest thought, obviously, from the Holy Spirit that I’ve ever had. I knew at that point that if I said, ‘No, I don’t want to do that,’ that would be saying, ‘I’m not going to do what you’re asking me to do.’
Tim and Tanna Roush are the proud parents of five beautiful children. They have three boys and two girls and are in the process of adding another sweet one to their bunch. When I had the opportunity to meet them in person I completely understood what their friend, Carrie Ann Gregory, was talking about when she said, “These two are a super amazing couple. Committed to each other, their family, and God!”
Their adventure of adoption starts with secondary infertility but isn’t the forefront of their story. Tanna tells me, “God put adoption on our hearts. On my heart since I was a teenager. It wasn’t something that I ever knew I would do for sure, necessarily, but it was something that I was always very sensitive to and always had in my mind, but I didn’t know why.” They always dreamed of having four children, but little did they know what God had in store for them. A year after she was vacuuming her foyer, she was in China on the way to meet her boys.
