Adoption Awareness Month

Every November is Adoption Awareness month. Adoption is done for many reasons, and it can be a difficult time for the birth mothers, the adoptee, and the adoptive parents. It can also be a happy time.

For those waiting to adopt be patient God has that child for you, it is just taking time. I strongly encourage those who are waiting to adopt, please find some adoptees and adoptive parents to talk to so you know what to expect. People who are adopted have issues that no one understands.  I am an adult adoptee, and I have had my share of problems just because of being adopted.

While adoption is a mixed bag of emotions for many “Adoption saves lives.” Adoption saved my life.

Each and everyone one of us has a story no matter is we are adopted or not, the color of our skin doesn’t matter, the situation behind our conception does not matter, to God we are all the same, and he loves us all the same. Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price because he loves so much. He adopted us into his family.

Romans 8:15 says, “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

  1. Hi SherryAnn! On February 14th, 2004 I got adopted from the Ukraine into an amazing family that loves the Lord. Now I hope and pray that I will live out my dream and go and rescue other orphans. God brought me out of the pit and I have not only been adopted by my earthly family but also by my Heavenly Father. Thank you for this post! God bless!
