Why is adoption so cool? I wish I could put my finger on one thing, but I can’t. There are a lot of things. First, it’s a picture of what God did for us—He chose us. Second, it’s amazing to see how quickly God gives us such deep and amazing love for our kids that He’s blessed us with. And, as they get older, it’s fun seeing how many of our kids take on our characteristics—both good and bad. But the thing that warms my heart the most is watching our kids come to Christ, knowing they might not have ever heard the Gospel—especially my daughter who was adopted from Siberia, Russia. If you’re not called to be an adoptive parent, that’s okay. Pray for adoptive families who deal with issues most families don’t.
