Why would you want to do that?

I am grateful for times when others do not embrace our decision to adopt. Why? Because God is providing opportunity. Opportunity for us to grow, opportunity for us to share our hearts and declare Christ's love, opportunity for others to be touched and most importantly for HIM to be made famous. See, we realize now that God calling us to adopt isn't about us, and it isn't about the children He has chosen for us, it is about HIM!! I have read that so many times in books and on blogs - but the difference is that now I have experienced it - I feel it - it is a part of me.
I have great peace in knowing that this calling isn't about walking through the doors of our home with our precious children - it is about the journey. While I look forward with excitement to that day when our children will be home and our family together - I don't want to miss what God has for me and us along the way.
