My husband Paul and I have felt the call to adopt as directed in James 1:27 for quite a while, and it has taken us this long to confirm and obey.
If not us, then who? If not now, then when?
Adoption and orphan care has always been at the heart of the Christian faith. We hope that our journey will encourage you that God is an oasis in the desert, that He always shows up, that He creates beauty from tragedy, and that He always provides.
There are Biblical parallels between adoption and the Christian faith. Adoption IS the demonstration of God's love for us. God adopted us when we came to Him covered in the disease of sin.
God does not ask us to live protectively, or safely, or to "live your best life".
God does not call us to be comfortable.
God calls us to lay down our lives to His will.
What is His will?
Repent and Believe. Follow!
We make it too complicated. And it's NOT.
He showed me the way out.
Somewhere in Africa, right at this moment, a mother is starving to death while she is pregnant. Worse, a mother is watching her child starve to death. Mothers, can you imagine this? Pray!
