Yes, Shane and I are adopting! We first started praying about this on the drive to our honeymoon flight. We knew God was leading us to start a family this summer (2013), so we began plan A: get kids however we can 🙂
So why are we adopting? Lets just say, Adoption is not a biological issue for us, it is a theological one.
Romans 8:15– So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”
Isaiah 1:17– Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.
The following sermon is exactly what Shane and I believe about adoption. We hope it encourages you as well!
Adoption: Pondering the privileges
I will be posting more about our journey to adopt our child. Until then, worship God with me, in His willingness to pursue and rescue us!
And for the record, Mr. Darcy, our pup, is still not sure about all this (as you can see in the picture).
