I was driving the other day and saw this bumper sticker. I googled it so you could see…
It’s so simple. I’d never thought of it before. But could those 2 words be more similar?
The abortion topic is a tricky one. My hands feel tied. The thought of those sweet babies…oh I can’t even type it.
But adoption could be part of the answer. Couldn’t it?
Nope, not everyone is called to adopt, but I believe more people are than have responded to the call.
Jeremy and I knew we were called to adopt for years. We kept waiting for the “right time.” We wanted…1-our kids to be older, 2-to save up more money, 3-to do a little more research. Those were wise thoughts, but they quickly became excuses.
We prayed about timing, and one day I came across this song. (You can skip to 3:00 if you don’t want to hear his explanation.). And finally, we said no more waiting. We went for it and trusted God (most days!) to lead us.
Now there’s this precious mocha chic with crazy hair who has her Daddy wrapped around her finger. She dances. She kisses. She has a smile that lights up a room. She was the one. She was worth the wait.
I have learned more about God’s grace and love through Esther Grace than in any other way throughout my life.
So pray about it. Then go for it. The journey may be hard, but…wow…God is faithful!
“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” (James 1:27)
