"What does security mean to you?"
"Why do you want to adopt?"
With these questions came the realization that our answers may not fit the standard answers that the social workers usually get. And I hope they don't. Our family has felt the call to pursue this thing called adoption. It's not for everyone. But we can't separate God's great grace and mercy and adoption of us as His children from our desire to adopt a child.
To love an orphan reflects the heart of God.
Deuteronomy 10:18 He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing.
It's God's heart toward the orphan that is driving us.
