This picture is the first time that papa got to physically see my grandson. The picture was taken in October 2000 when Blake was 9 mos. old. Mama was so excited to see her first grand child. A day we shall not forget.
Some of you are considering adopting. Mama and I never adopted, however, in addition to our own two children, through the years have had over 30 foster children. One of the highlights we have had is taking 90 day old twins and placing them in the arms of their adoptive parents. That was hard - but God ordained.
If you are considering adoption - trust God. Discuss openly with those who have a say in the decision process. I think the bottom line is having trust in God that you are going down a road that He is walking with you. Adoption is an act of love, certainly He is there with you.
MY daughter and son-in-law are leaving any day now to go pick up my third grand child, Sara, their second adopted child. This last child has been a process that has taken time & patience. One of the key players in this process was my precious grand daughter - Sydney who my daughter gave birth to in 2001.
As they began this process a couple of years ago, my daughter was saying prayers one night with Sydney. Sydney's prayer went something like this; "Jesus, and please watch over Sara too! Amen!" My daughter asked Sydney who Sara was, Sydney said; "She is the girl that you and daddy want to adopt - I gave her a name, so Jesus knows who I am praying for." Sydney was 4 or 5 at this time.
If you are considering adoption, remember, God has one all picked out for you. After all, He chose you to be a part of His family, have you accepted Him yet?
