Adoption Is More Than Becoming A Mommy
When I was a little girl and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, the first thing I said was, "A mommy!"
But our adoption is about so much more than making me a mommy or Dave a daddy. It’s about giving a child a forever home where they will be loved and taught about God. It’s about giving them opportunities to grow and discover their unique talents and gifts. It’s about building a family however God calls us to build it—even if it’s not the easiest way. There are a lot of unknowns on this road towards adoption. We’re a little nervous, but also so confident that God will provide what we need along the way.
There is something uniquely beautiful about adoption. It mirrors God’s adoption of each of us as his children, welcoming us into his family. As we continue to take steps forward on this journey, Dave and I can’t even begin to tell you how much it means to have you standing with us in prayer! Much love to you all.
