Giving Thanks

Give Thanks – 8: Adoption

“Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.  God settles the solitary in a home…” (Psalm 68:5-6a)



Today, I am thankful that our God cares for orphans.  I am thankful for the adoptive families who bring these little ones into their homes and care for them as their own.  I am thankful for organizations like Show Hope, which help these families by bearing some of the financial burden.  And, I am thankful for churches that seek to be places where “unwanted babies become beloved children.” (Adopted for Life, pg. 79)

**Editor’s Note: Generally speaking, disagreeing with something I write will not necessarily prevent your comment from being posted.  If you want to disagree with me, fine.  However, I have asked that you do so kindly, and not use my blog as a platform to further your agenda.  I was surprised to have received several comments on this post disagreeing with my thankfulness for adoption.  You may notice that none of them have been published.  As I also said in my Comment Policy, I reserve the right to edit, delete, or reject any comments that I deem to be offensive, inappropriate, or disrespectful.  Because we, as believers, have been adopted into the family of God, I find anti-adoption sentiments highly inappropriate, and they will not be tolerated on this, or any future posts.  Do we understand one another?  Good.
