It has long been a desire in my heart to be a foster family or even an adoptive family.
Recently I went onto our state’s DHHS website to look for further information. While I was there I stumbled on the page of children waiting for adoption. Children in our state. Waiting. No family. All alone.
It absolutely broke my heart. I have always loved sponsoring children through Compassion. Somehow I didn’t even think about the children stuck in the system. In my country. In my state.
Immediately I started looking into a degree in Social Work, but I hadn’t been at peace with that scenario. I don’t want to just try and find kids good homes, and a forever family. I want to ensure they have one!
So whether God allows me to adopt them all (Which means I’ll need a mansion this side of heaven. Do you happen to know of one that’s being given away?), or if I start a Ministry Kids Home, only He knows!
My next step is a phone call to find out how I can help reaching them now.
Remember what Jesus said in Mark 9:36-37?
“And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them, Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.”
I am so blessed to have received two blessings of my own, and I am praying about how God would have us “receive” another child.
