"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

  1. I think that is a really hard question to ask--and after bringing home a child with special needs...I really have mixed feelings about the answer on this other blog. There are a lot of reasons believers should adopt--and just as many why some should not. BUT for those that should not...there are many ways for them to serve and support those who are called to adopt. And I do think we are all called to serve and visit orphans and the poor for sure!

  2. I agree with Andrea. That was really thought provoking to read. AND I would have to agree that a lot of reasons/excuses people make NOT to adopt are for selfish reasons.

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
