We have all heard the saying,
"Stand for something or you'll fall for anything."
I am beginning to see adoption as a victory. There are so many things that adoption wins on.
For the family it wins pleasure, fulfillment, joy, contentment, love, legacy, blessings...
For the child(ren) it wins heritage, belonging, love, acceptance, love...
I feel like I could go on and on about the reality of adoption. It ultimately brings victory to all of the lives it touches. Adoption is at the heart of the gospel. The gospel is the main victory.
And so what are you standing for? Who are you standing for?
"I'll stand with arms high and heart abandoned in awe of the One who gave it all."
Will you join me? Happy Monday!
