The Adoption Option

February 28, 2008

Amy and I truly enjoyed getting to share part of our story with you at Connection last week. We are always available to talk to anyone who would like to know more about our adoption and the path God has laid before us.

I was very encouraged by an article on adoption from Christianity Today‘s website. The author is a pastor who found himself on the adoption journey, and he went to the Bible with some real questions. “What did the Bible really teach us about infertility and adoption? How did God use it in the lives of His people? How was He using it in mine?” The Old and New Testaments brought some surprising results. His conclusion:

There is no doubt that infertility is a difficult, painful issue and can often lead to a season of doubt or despair. But there is also no doubt that adoption is a God-honoring option to consider when the traditional road to parenting goes unanswered. We are not guaranteed the answers that we always want, but we are guaranteed answers that will glorify Christ and allow us to live in a spirit of adoption.
