Several months ago my husband and I met with a couple who were considering adoption. We were thrilled to do this! We consider it one of our greatest joys to be able to share our personal experience and help someone else who is starting down this journey.
We visited with them about where they were at in the process, and different options that were out there. It was just a sweet time of getting to talk adoption. I left that meeting thinking...Wow, thanks God for allowing us to do this. Well, fast forward several months later and I have to tell you this couple has amazed me!! I think sometimes when we think God is using us to help someone else, He really might be doing the opposite! I have learned a ton from this "waiting mom" about being willing to open yourself up to His plan.
She has now started a blog about their adoption journey. She opens up her heart to the whole process and it is so incredible to see how far they have come. I can not wait to see what God has in store for this family! You can follow their journey at www.themadoles.blogspot.com.
If you or someone you know is considering adoption, or foster care Engaging the Fatherless has many people on our team who have walked this journey before you and would love to help in any way. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help put you in contact with the right person.
"For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will." Ephesians 4:1-5
