I started this blog with one purpose — in hopes to convince other Christians to adopt. Lately, other purposes have cropped up… keeping friends up to date on our adoption , exchanging adoption advice, or telling general thoughts about God and Christianity.
These are all good purposes, but let me be direct to my original call… if you are a Christian, please pray about whether you are called to adopt!!! I don’t say this simply because it’s a good way to be charitable. Charity is good. But adoption will also change your world. It will open your eyes to who God is. It will open others eyes to what REAL religion is… pure & undefiled. We also were adopted by God, and we can learn about and pass on this insane gift He has bestowed on us.
I realize this is not a flowery way to urge you into prayer. But if the Holy Spirit wants to move in you, He can, regardless of the rough edges around this message. Open your heart to Him. Ask Him whether you can give your parenting, your heart, & your home to a child who was ordained since the beginning of time to be yours. I realize we haven’t finished our first adoption yet, but I still feel confident in promising you this — you will be even more blessed the sweet child you bring home!
