“A father to the fatherless….is God in His Holy habitation. God places the lonely in families and gives them a home in which to dwell.” –Psalm 68:5-6
Each night we pray for kids who don’t have a family to love them. We don’t know what the children that we will adopt will look like yet or who they are, but God does. God sees them where they are at this very moment. He has known from the beginning of time that he would take us on this journey. God is such a tender and loving Father and He wants what is best for each of His children. I know that He is preparing us each day. We know that Father God has this entire journey in His hands.
This week we have been praying about and researching things that we need to do to prepare for the adoption. We have looked at the paperwork, books we need to read, things we need to do, and planning fund raisers. At some moments, we get overwhelmed by the scope of it all, but then God reminds us that He has a hope and a future for us and for our kids. God has it under control and we surrender ourselves to Him.
