November is National Adoption Month.
And yesterday was Orphan Sunday.
So the subject of adoption has been occupying a lot of my brain matter lately. As a momma to seven beloved children that were once considered orphans, adoption is often on my mind. But I’ve been reminded that I want my passion for adoption to be more than something that is on my heart and in my head… I want my life to be affected as well. I want to be changed.
I want my life to look different because of all that God has revealed to me about His heart for the orphan.
I had hoped to write a post yesterday about adoption, but that post will have to wait. The words would not come. For now I have some simple pictures. And I’ve linked all of our adoption journeys below as well, in case you have a few spare minutes. Or hours…
Will share more about ways to become involved in caring for the orphan and supporting adoptive families as the month goes on. A reminder to adopting and fundraising families, ads here are free and 1/2 priced in honor of National Adoption Month.
