My wife and I are considering adoption once our son gets a little bit older. In an effort to bless our city (Denver), we are thinking of going with either a local adoption agency or being a part of the local foster care system with the hopes of one day adopting a child of any ethnicity.
It would be a beautiful thing to bring a small child home with us and call him/her our child – and for him/her to call me, father, and Rebecca, mother.
Similarly, God looked at us before the beginning of time and called us our son & daughter. The “earthly” view of adoption is a great reminder of what God has done for us – and – the price Jesus paid for adoption to be accomplished.
