Does our family have room for one more? Does yours?
Our lives are full. Our hands are full. I cannot physically have any more children, and I have been more than fine with that. When that door closed, I felt at peace and assumed our family was complete. I have not experienced baby withdrawal, I don’t miss the days of diapers and late night feedings. Part of me feels totally content in saying I don’t need anymore kids. I am totally content with the size our family is now. We could totally fit into a small compact car if we needed to! But seriously, that’s not a good reason.
What I’ve Learned:
Adopting a child out of foster care can cost as little as $200.
What I’m Thinking:
Who Will Say Yes, When So Many People Say No?
What I’m Reading:
Questions I’ve Heard:
*How will this affect our family?
*What if they try to harm me or my kids?
*What if they act out towards me and make up lies?
What I Know:
*God calls us to care for orphans.
*Over 3,000 here in my home state of Michigan.
*I personally, only know of a couple people that have adopted, only 1 that has adopted from foster care.
*Too many people have only heard the horror stories.
*Children in need are children in need. No matter where they come from or what their limitations may be.
*We were all adopted into the family of God.
