Are you thinking about adoption? We give you an insight into resources and share our personal experiences with you.
Thinking About Adoption
Choosing to adopt a child is a really big deal. I personally think that is very honorable of you.
As a mother going through the fostering to adopt process…From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you!
Thank you for thinking of someone else and not just yourself.
Whether you are thinking about becoming a foster parent, going through the foster to adopt process, adopting from the United States, or adopting from overseas, sincerely thank you!
I truly believe that there was a reason you stumbled across this post right now.
The call, it’s calling you.
It’s a pretty remarkable call, isn’t it?
To make a difference in someone else’s life.
Different by Micha Tyler
In fact, there’s a beautiful song “Different” by Micah Tyler that I just absolutely LOVE!
If you have a few minutes I would totally love for you to check it out!
It will give you another uplifting reminder that God is there to help you as you walk through the next journey of your life.
I know exactly how you feel.
When we first found out that we were approved to be foster parents and then approved to adopt a child my heart was full of smiles and rainbows.
Come on… what is cooler than doing God’s work?❤️
Did you know that in the bible it says, “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me,” Matthew 18:5
Again… goosebumps. 🙂
I just want you to know that you’re not alone in this process.
Adopting a Child
If it is something that you wholeheartedly want to do reach out to other people you know who’ve already adopted.
Familiarize yourself with all of the resources and know that it’s not always easy but it’s worth it.
For example, some of the following resources could help answer some of the questions you may have!
My husband and I are currently going through the fostering to adopt process.
We have been licensed foster parents since 2018.
Over the last few years, we have had four placements in our home and one little guy that has been with us since he was just six weeks old.
He is going to be two this August.
We call him Superman. He was born with two different forms of blindness and has had to overcome obstacles every day of his life.
He’s an amazing little boy that we are truly blessed to know.
We know that God isn’t finished writing his story yet and we are so hopeful to be a part of it.
Just like God isn’t finished writing your story yet either. If you are thinking about adopting… pray about it.
Let God continue to open those doors for you!
Prayers for strength, joy, peace, and blessings as you move into this new chapter in your life.
