Is Jesus an Adoption Advocate?

My Darling is out speaking to teens for the second night this week. I have been sitting here catching up on some of the adoption blogs I started following. I came across a post written by a woman who is in Ethiopia right now picking up her beautiful son, Isaac. So exciting! I scrolled through her photos with tears streaming down my cheeks, my arms aching for my baby. Soon it will be our turn. For now we {try} to enjoy the ride, although I do believe that God wants us to feel a sense of urgency. Is there not an urgency to the Gospel of Jesus Christ? And ultimately this adoption has a kingdom purpose.

I digress.

I happened on a post written by this woman that just floored me. I found myself nodding and thinking yes, that is what I have been trying to communicate all week in my posts! She is just much more eloquent and I think says everything I have been trying and failing to say so much better. Since she is in Africa right now, I cannot get a hold of her to ask her if I could cut and paste her article onto my blog, so I am begging you to go read it here. But will you come back to me and let me know what you think?

Does that make more sense?

Oh, and if have the time her post here from today about meeting her son's birth mom is so moving.

I think for me, this encourages me to not be so quick to judge other peoples decisions in life. I've always been an advocate of letting people do their thing when it comes to following God and what He leads them to do. I think sometimes though, in the back of my mind, I silently think of what would work better for them. This can be anything, not just adoption. I guess the bottom line is that I have no idea what God is working in someone else's life and I need to make sure that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing and pray that I have the faith to do whatever He calls me to do, no matter what others may think.

Thanks for sharing another good one, Tiffany.

I understand your advocacy for widows and orphans. Where do you stand on the elderly? I've been sick to my stomach all day because my mom is moving my grandmother into a group home. My parents have plenty of room in their own home to take her in, but instead are just passing her off. She's still able bodied, and gets around fine, she's just forgetful and occasionally has a bit of dementia. I just don't think they're doing the right thing.

I just came from there through Kristi's link and then I saw your post! Wasn't it amazing? I'm thinking she goes to Andy Stanley's church, maybe?
