It has been said, “natural child birth is a result of passion, adoption is a result of compassion” – author unknown
Natural child birth is God at work; His design, purpose, and plan for the family glorifies Him as Creator!
Adoption of a child is God at work, as well. It is through love and compassion that God has adopted His children to be heirs according to the promise; this glorifies God as merciful, loving, and as the one who will judge without partiality!
Whether you are able to have children naturally, or you are not able to, I hope you will consider adopting a child who needs a loving family. I was adopted, and have been through the system as a child; I speak from experience, not only as a father who adopted a bundle of joy we call Edward, but also as one who has been on the other end of the process.
What goes through the mind of a child who awaits adoption? They spend their days wondering if they are lovable; valuable; redeemable and salvageable. They ask, “does anyone love me?”
Will a family find that child lovable and valuable enough to spring them from the prison of despair, loneliness, and hopelessness by adopting them? You answer that question.
Adopt a child: bless, and be blessed 🙂
