November Is National Adoption Month
One of my very favorite things to celebrate! My family was built on adoption, and I’ve had the privilege of working to help bring families together for more than 10 years now. The privilege and blessing of that isn’t lost on me, and I thank God every single day for it.
I remember reading that if just 6% of the world’s Christians would adopt, we would have no more adoptable children in the world. That is staggering to me. I think so many people are overwhelmed by adoption – how can we afford it, where do we start? And sometimes that fear keeps us from listening to God’s voice telling us to move. Reminding us of His command in James 1:27: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress.”
Adoption is hard, yes. It’s emotional and difficult and expensive and not perfect. There is grief and there is turmoil. It stems from loss. But there is the lesson of ultimate redemption. There is love beyond imagination. It’s a beautiful, miraculous thing.
Part of what we do at Christian Adoption Consultants is help walk families through the more difficult and overwhelming parts. We help families fund raise, find grants/loans, we work with highly ethical agencies who use best practices. Part of my job is help make the process easier! I’d love to talk to you about adoption in general and about what we do at CAC! Email me at karalee@
