A Love We Can Give

 

Our journey began with hurt. 

 

Tears weld in my eyes when I think of the lives some children are born into. The children who don’t have a mommy and daddy who love each other. Who wake up and think to themselves ‘how did I even make it to today?‘ The children who don’t feel like their voice matters so they keep the hurt inside while their heart screams. This is why we believe in adoption and good foster homes. It gives a child a second chance at life. Their lives started with hurt but it doesn’t have to continue. 

Hurt is what stirred our hearts to rise up.

I do fear failed adoptions and having to send children back into abusive homes because that is the law. That is possible hurt Peter and I will endure. But the part that gives me overwhelming grief is that most children don’t get a second chance of life. But what grieves my heart even more is that the church of today sleeps on it. There are children getting abused,  placed in motels because there aren’t enough homes or are abused in the homes they are placed in. This happens during the Churches nap. I’m not saying every Church, I’m not saying every home should do foster care. But I am saying this find a way to care for the widows and orphans.  Satan thrives off of child abuse, but we serve a God who’s love is bigger. That love is in us to give.

    1. Before Peter and I even dated he knew my desire was to adopt someday. It’s a huge decision and should be talked about before marriage. Some people don’t want to adopt and that’s ok. Being an adoptee and now an adopter is a lot of work but to us worth it.

  1. My heart breaks for the children as well! The innocent and vulnerable so often get the raw deal. Adoption and Foster Care are SO needed but aren’t the only ways people can help! I just wrote an article I think you would like. “Have Mercy on the Children”… where I talk about the need for believers to consider some specific areas they can help children!
    Thanks for “caring for the orphans!”

  2. When I visited the Philippines; I saw so many homeless children. It breaks my heart to see them beg for food. Some kids as young as 1 year old was walking around the street without clothes or shoes. I know God will hear your prayers and give your hearts desire.

  3. Wow..your post really touches me. For someone like me who doesn’t face the reality of child abuse and kids getting pushed along and not a part of a loving home, how can I contribute? With three kids of my own, the thought of someone abusing them makes me sick. We are ALL precious in His eyes…all set apart. I sometimes think as a society we brush things under the rug, or don’t want to believe these things are true because the problem is so big and we don’t know what to do as individuals.

    1. I agree society definitely pushes it under the rug and sometimes even encourages it. The best ways to help is by supporting foster parents or parents who have adopted around you, donating to people who are adopting whether that be money clothes or other things they may need and praying for and with the families.
