Adam and I have always had a heart for adoption.
Adam’s aunt and uncle adopted their only son, Henry. My brother in law‘s family adopted two little girls, Selena and Stephanie, almost 10 years ago. Adopting for us isn’t a new idea, we’ve been talking about it for years.
We believe as Christians, the act of adoption is one very close to what God did with us. God loved us enough to welcome us into his family and call us his. We would love to be able to welcome a child into our home and make them a part of us, share our name with them.
Adam’s aunt was able to have a private adoption. Her pastor heard about a baby that was conceived to two students not ready to start a family. He knew that Auntie always wanted children of her own. Within a few weeks, Henry was brought home and was named a Wiygul. He is so perfect for their family – you would never know he was adopted!
I dream for when it is my turn. We started looking at adopting with some different agencies last summer. After getting bogged down with all the paperwork and fee schedules, we decided to postpone the process. In my dreams, we will just find a baby who needs a home and be able to open up our home for them. I pray it will be match that only God can make (just like Henry’s match).
