About Rebekah

Hi! I'm Rebekah, the blog author and wife/mom of the Yes to Adoption crew. I'm 29 and a mom to our son Israel (born October 2011) who came home in May 2012 from Ethiopia, Edith who was born in August 2013 and Annalise born in January 2017. In my former days, I was a social worker, crafter, and avid coffee drinker.

Now? Well, as any mom can testify- the coffee remains but the free time for anything seems to come in very tiny spurts. I'm still figuring out my role as "mom" and how that has completely changed my identity. Some days I love it, some days I have to really fight through the selfishness. I finished my MSW in 2014 and have worked in social work with older adults and foster care.

My husband is the pastor of Crossroads Christian Church in Brooklyn, New York. We moved to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn in June 2015 and we are very excited about our new community. I'm a stay at home mom to my two awesome kiddos. I should also note that Israel has cerebral palsy and Autism, and that has shaped me so much in the past few years as we have learned more about his needs and have changed our routines and expectations for our life.

Most importantly, I'm a sinner who has been transformed by grace through the gospel. I hope that you read this and see how God can work in anyone (including messed up, selfish people) to receive glory because it is all about Jesus. He came, He redeemed. It's salvation for the taking, people! Let me know if you have questions about it. 

If you want to follow along with our other social media outlets, you can find me on Twitter and Instagram as the user @rebekahmcgee and on Facebook "Saying Yes to Adoption" - you can also find me on snapchat as "rebekahmcgeeNYC" so see you on the WWW! :)
