Stories of Love, Experience, & Adoption

Our Adoption Experience Was Led By God

Our Adoption Experience Was Led By God

The Foster Family

The path leading to the adoption of our daughters wasn’t a mistake, or a “Plan B” or even a lucky coincidence.  It was all God-ordained and God led. 

That doesn’t mean that there weren’t hills and valleys along the way (primarily due to our own stubbornness), but when we finally got out of God’s way and allowed him to soften our hearts to his will, beauty unfolded.  

In Isaiah 55:8-9 we read, for “this plan of mine is not what you would work out, neither are my thoughts the same as yours!  For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than yours.”  Isn’t it wonderful that we serve a God who has such infinitely better plans for us than we could ever dare to imagine?  It is humbling and awe-inspiring at the same time.

Perhaps God is calling you to step out into the unknown.  Could it be that he has laid adoption on your heart?  Maybe he is just asking you to step aside so that he can work his big plan in your life.  Jeremiah 29:11 clearly reminds us that “I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future”. 

Whatever it is, listen, trust and obey.  You won’t regret it!
