This comes in many forms… international, domestic, relinquishing parental rights to a family member. Are any of my readers adopted? I know a few of you have adopted children.
We were watching Discovery Health Channel again today. There was a program about infertility. I couldn’t help but wonder if all that money that couples pour into trying so very hard to have a biological baby was used to adopt instead, how would that affect the world we live in and the amount of children needing loving homes? I wonder. Non-judgmental wonder, by the way. But wonder. Hmm.
I want to adopt internationally. That door is sealed tightly shut at the moment. To supplement my desire, in the future I will do medical mission trips which concentrate on orphans. I have a heart for the abandoned children of this world. God broke me on this issue when Brianna was a mere 3 months old. Never before, that I know of, had this idea crossed my mind. Yet, there it is etched on my heart like the Ten Commandments were etched on those stones.
How do you feel about adoption? Are you in the process? Are you, like me, feeling the call but getting a big fat giant can’t get any bolder “NO” from your spouse? Are you like my husband and have absolutely no desire to have children that don’t come from you biologically?
If you have adopted, please chime in about your experience(s). I love this subject. Dearly!!
