9. Why Adopt?
Jesus. It is merely our response to the Gospel. God adopted us into his family, he bought us at a high price, he welcomed us as his firstborn child despite our disease, he treats us like firstborn children, Adoption is merely our response to the love that has been given freely to us. It is the ultimate discipleship. It is caring for orphans. It is serving the least of these. It is advocating for the fatherless. And loving the oppressed.
Second of all, we wanted more children and this is they way God put on our hearts to pursue it. Since I was a little girl my heart has been drawn to the strength and beauty and plight of the african people, little did I know he would weave that into my story for how we expanded our family.
