Why "got love?"?

This is a post from several months ago when we were first introducing our "got love?" fundraising theme. I was thinking with all the Christmas shopping links, there are many who are visiting our blog for the first time. I decided to repost an earlier post from our blog.

For all of you that have been on the edge of your seats pondering day and night what it takes to adopt....your wait is over!! I think everyone, whether you have adopted or not, know how long and detailed the process is. It does take a lot of things..I don't in anyway want to minimize that.

CALLING--I would venture to say the first thing you would need was a calling from the Lord, who is true and active in the lives of His children. Is every person called to adopt? I don't think so, but I do think that more believers ARE and miss it. How are we loving our neighbor when so many of them are hungry, sad and lonely? Are we forgetting to care for the fatherless? Get real with the Lord and don't be afraid to ask him.."do you desire for me to adopt?" GOT A CALLING?

MONEY--That one is no secret, but neither is the fact that the Lord will fund what He has called you to. He cares for you and will continually provide for your needs. (That may not include all those "wants" that we have.) GOT TRUST?

TIME AND PATIENCE FOR PAPERWORK, APPTS., ETC--We make time in our lives for what we see as important. The mounds of paperwork and requirements slowly dwindle and get done. GOT A NOTARY?

~And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1Cor 13:13
~For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish by have eternal life. John 3:16

Clue #3: From near to far, from here to there, you'll spread the adoption message everywhere!!


  1. I love your story on how "got love" got started. My sister loves her shirt. I think I need to get one ordered too! Now to decide, shirt or hoodie.

  2. I am sooo bad at guessing....but I LOVE YOUR STORY & YOUR FAMILY!!!! :)

  3. it is totally a car....a "got love?" mini van. I am so right....

  4. I think that many people miss this calling too, I bet that blogging world has introduced a new aspect to adoption. I am thankful to have it to support me through this process and I hope that it will help spread the word along the way.

    It totally sounds like a car to me too, but that couldn't be. I am so stumped!

  5. My guess is a back pack. But I love the car idea.

    Hey...maybe it is a magnet for your car. (no, you wouldn't fill it)

  6. I am so bad at guessing games. But I LOVE the story and the Got Love motto!
