AMP S3E10-11: Disrupted Adoptions (Parts 1 and 2) - Amy Butler, Rachel Kirksey, and Randi Perkins

This episode was so full of amazingness that I couldn’t stand to cut any of it out to get it to all fit in one episode, so, like any good host in a bind, I made it a 2-parter!

First up, a VIP of the show, Amy Butler. You guys fell in love with Amy back in season 1, and she’s here on this episode to tell you guys about a much harder part of their adoption journey, one in which they chose to disrupt a placement for the health of their family.


The finale interview of part 1 comes from Rachel Kirksey. Rachel and her husband Ben never opened as an adoptive home or even as a foster home officially, but they did say yes when God literally dropped a young boy on their doorstep and asked them to take care of him. Through a really tough seasons, Rachel learned that yes to God doesn’t always mean what you think it will.

In part 2 of our series on disrupted adoption, we sit down with Randi Perkins. Randi and her husband Lloyd have 3 boys, none of whom are adopted, but not for lack of trying. Randi had a tough few years where she waited out a hard season of following the Lord that ended in 3 disrupted adoptions. From really hard behavioral problems to some spiritual warfare issues, Randi had to learn to follow God wherever He led her.
