Adoption is a New Testament principle. While I will not say that all are called to adopt, I will say that all are called to support those who do. Adoption is at the heart of God's plan for His people. I am proud to say that I have been adopted. No, I was not adopted by earthly parents, I was adopted by the Creator of the Universe. He, out of His great love and mercy, chose to graft me into the family tree.
Some day soon you too will be adopted. You will be adopted by a father who loves you and will care for your needs. You will also be introduced, if you do not already know Him, to our Savior Jesus Christ. In this way you will have the opportunity to be adopted twice.
Many ask why mom and I feel like we are to adopt. For us, it is a matter of faith. Our faith in who Christ is leads us to obey Him in His call to father the fatehrless. We are young enough and passionate enough to obey His call. Whether you who read this are able to adopt or not, consider how you can support hose who do. Can you give to help finance an adoption? Can you love and support a family through prayer? Can you offer to sit with kids or provide meals once a new child is introduced into a family? Whatever you do, let it be beacuse of your faith in Christ.
Mom and I hope to see you soon!
