November is National Adoption Month. I admire people who have fostered and adopted children. We were taught how important fostering is from the Bible. Joseph was chosen by God, to be Jesus’ foster father, or adopted father. Joseph took his role very seriously and kept Jesus and Mary safe.
When I hear people, most especially Christian people say things like, I don’t want children if they’re not of our bloodline, or when I hear people dogging gay couples for adopting it makes me angry. Whether or not I agree with people’s lifestyles it’s important that every child is loved. It doesn’t matter their gender, their color or religious beliefs. It matters that a child is cared for and loved.
This November if you’re thinking about adoption, pray on it. If this is your path God will lead you. If you’re not adopting then pray for those that would like to build a family to love and cherish for years to come. Pray that the children with out parents, who are cast aside and headed for a very poor start in their adult life will get a family to raise them.
We can all make a difference in a child’s life and adoption is a way to form a bond that will bless you and them for years to come.
I love this, I think its so important if you have the space , do foster or adopt, so many wonderful children out there looking for a good home.
I agree. I’ll never understand those who say they only want kids that are theirs biologically. Kids are easy to love, no matter what!
there needs to be more love in the world for every child.
For the new year it would be so nice to see more children loved and cared for. I agree Tamara kids are easy to love. People don’t have to adopt to support adoption, they can donate and volunteer too.
I do think adoption is wonderful and rewarding. I know many relatives or friends who have adopted children and it was the best thing they ever did.
