The Days the World went Wrong

Aug 22 & Sept 13 2009


We miss Cyndi and Monique more than words can express, but we have this hope, this confidence, that because of their faith in Christ, to be absent from the body is to be with Christ. The parting is not final, but each of us will have to wait until we see Jesus face to face to be able to hold Cyndi, Monique and Keshon again.


It was the day(s) the world went wrong,

 I screamed til my voice was gone

And watched through the tears,

 As everything came crashing down

Slowly panic turns to pain, As we awake to what remain

and sift through the ashes that are left behind


But buried deep beneath,

 All our broken dreams, we have this hope:


Out of these ashes... beauty will rise

and we will dance among the ruins,

 We will see Him with our own eyes

Out of these ashes... beauty will rise

For we know, joy is coming in the morning...

 in the morning, beauty will rise


 “Beauty Will Rise” by Steven Curtis Chapman

 (Monique and Cyndi died within 3 weeks of each other in 2009)

Hi, we are the Young Family. We have one biological and seven adopted children. In 1986 we started adopting special kids who needed a mom and a dad. Why? Because we wanted to make a difference, we wanted to do something that counted. Each one of our children are unique and special. We know that God made a way for us to adopt each one. Each one is a story of a miracle and of God’s hand of protection! God is GOOD!

Psalm 139:16-17a

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God!
