We are often asked if we think everyone should adopt. Deep down I want to scream YES there are so many children that need homes, why wouldn’t you adopt. Adoption has become a part of our life. We have one child through birth, one through domestic private adoption and two on their way from international adoption.
Some people say, well we haven’t been called so we are happy for you, but it’s not for us. UM …. okay. I seem to lean towards the other side of the spectrum on this one. You have a home. You are a mom and a dad. You have the means to raise another child (which if you live in America, yes you do!). You love God. UM …. maybe you should listen a little harder to God! I know that’s harsh and not everyone is going to adopt a child, but I would love to see more people in the church doing this. Okay enough of that.
Shaun Groves just posted a blog asking if adoption was part of God’s plan for every believer. Interesting. Contrary to my last paragraph, I’m still not certain what my opinion is on this. I mean yes I wish everyone would adopt orphans, but to say that it is God’s will for everyone; I’m not sure on my opinion of this just yet. Tell me your thoughts.
