It has been a long process, but over the course of the past year, God has laid on our hearts the option of adoption. There are many reasons why we are excited about this decision and many reasons why we are equally scared and apprehensive. We have researched and dissected every argument for and against international adoption. We have prayed about it separately, and as a family.
Our primary reason for wanting to adopt is because we want to expand our family.
Our secondary reason for wanting to adopt is because we believe God has placed this call on our lives.
We love because God first loved us (1 John 4:19) and we are now pursuing adoption because he first adopted us (Galations 3:26, 4:6).
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the father means caring for orphans. James 1:27
Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. Isaiah 1:17
