It's War

...adoption isn't charity--it's war.

This is taken from the book Adopted for Life by Russell D. Moore. While I have not made my way very far in the book (it's full of a lot of theological stuff, so it's not a real quick read for me), this statement has made a huge impact on my heart.

Why?

Because I think we've been called to step into the life of another of God's precious children. And it isn't charity. It's not what we imagined. But thus far, nothing God's called us to has been anything I could have envisioned.

But it is worth fighting for.

I wish I could give more details, but at this point, all I can do is thank my two friends that have been interceding on our behalf, and ask anyone else that feels moved to pray for us to please do so.

I leave you with the status I recently posted on FB before any of this happened:

It doesn't concern me if what I do raises the eyebrows of a few; I am concerned if what I do makes a difference.


Thank you for your prayers. I will keep you posted! :o)
