Whenever someone finds out that you are going to adopt they automatically shower you with questions. Some negative, and some positive. I probably have been guilty of this myself. Don't get me wrong, asking us questions about our adoption journey isn't bad at all, but it is certain questions that just make me want to hug them and say "Jesus loves us so much"! The biggest question, "WHY?" My responses have been, "We feel called to adopt from foster care", "We can have healthy children of our own, but why bring more children into the world when there are so many children here that need loving, supportive, stable homes" and mostly, "What if we were at God's thrown asking Him to adopt us into His kingdom to have eternal life, and He looked at us, and asked, "Why would I want to adopt you?"
Ephesians 1:5 "He predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will"
...and this all in Love!
Aren't we so lucky to have a Father who loves us enough to adopt us...forever!?
God loves us unconditionally, and He loves His orphans, and widows. These children have been bruised, battered, neglected, emotionally scarred! And then God leads some of the chosen families or parents that He wants to adopt these children and lead them to Him, and we are one of those families! Some may not understand, but after sticking with our blog, we hope that you may understand a tad bit better than when you first asked the question, "Why?"
As they say, "God doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called!"
