This is something I have been thinking about for a long time but someone on another blog posted it so well that I just decided to link you to her blog so please click here to read this post.
I can't tell you how many people have said to me "we thought about adopting at one time" or "we're thinking about adopting". If all the Christians in the world that have "thought" of adopting actually stepped out in faith and did it my guess is that there would be very few orphans in the world. Maybe it's time Christians start asking God for a clear NO on adopting rather than waiting and waiting for a clear YES. Chances are if God placed it on your heart then that was his "YES".
When you read the post I linked you to please go to the link that she has for Bill's adoption story.
I have also just placed some statistics on my sidebar. Please take time to read these.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
