I get asked questions all the time. As a wife of twenty-six years, a mom of ten—seven having been adopted, a homeschooler and a writer of over 60 books people want to know how my life works. Here is one of those questions and my short answer. More to come in the coming weeks!
I love that you have a heart for adoption. I truly know this is God’s heart too. The one thing I can suggest is PRAY. Pray that God will give you the space to match your heart. It’s amazing what He can do! Also consider this may not be the season for you to adopt, but maybe you can bless other adoptive families. John and I adopted seven years after we first felt the call to adopt. Looking back we see God’s timing was best. There are many ways you can support adoptive families: offer to babysit, take them a meal, pick up small gifts from the dollar store. People have stepped up to bless up and it’s been amazing and so appreciated! I trust that as you seek God, and look around for opportunities, He’ll be faithful to lead you.
