If 1 out of 4…

“If 1 family out of every 4 churches in America adopted a child, we would have no more orphans in our country.”  – Kay Warren

If that is all it takes, and there are still orphans in our country, the church has to step it up. 

The idea of adoption keeps coming up.  This weekend at catalyst Andrew and I were reminded once again of Jesus’ COMMAND (not suggestion) to take care of widows and orphans.  In the same way he told us to love one another, he told us to take care of the vulnerable.  Why are we not doing this?

Will Andrew and I adopt?  Yes, I believe so.  Will it be now?  Will it be instead of our own?  I don’t know. 

Right now we are in the stage of ‘yes, we are seriously considering this.’  We don’t know timing and we don’t have any information.  But God is definately stirring our hearts.

    Our hearts are full of love already for whichever child God brings into your family–actually OUR family. He or she will be a gift and a blessing.

    Yes!!!!!!! I mean, I’m biased about this, but could not be more excited for this seed God has planted in your hearts. I can’t wait to see how it grows!
