Adoption sure has been in the spotlight recently. Some good, some awful. The bottom line is that people will always have an opinion as to how it should or should not be done. Sadly, sometimes those opinions do nothing but cause division and ultimately hurt adoptive families and the children who still wait for someone to come for them.
As I continue on in the series I have been doing on adoption awareness, today everything in me wants to shout it from the rooftops…
Adopted children are a blessing from heaven!
Every child deserves the love of a family…no matter what is “wrong” with them!
God is faithful to provide for the orphan when we are obedient.
He sets the lonely in families…not orphanages!
Today I’m going to do something a little different in this series. With all the negativity in the press and on public forums and blogs lately, I want to declare into the heavenlies that adoption IS God’s heart and that there are many, many incredible testimonies out there. There is power in our testimony–the stories that HE has written!
The enemy is scattered when the body of Christ comes together as one to declare His goodness, His faithfulness, and His power to rescue the fatherless.
If you have adopted or fostered a child from anywhere and would love to join me in telling the world that HE HAS DONE GREAT THINGS…please go ahead and add your blog to the Linky below. Let the whole world see that our children may not have come from our wombs, but they are loved, cherished and such a blessed part of our families. They are WORTH IT! You will be given a space to add a caption and a photo of your child/family.
“I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly.” ~~ Psalm 40:10
