Worth Reading...

"But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Galatians 4:4-6

Wonderful! I was teary the whole time I was reading - I wish I was younger to adopt a whole bunch of kids. Fostering is my contribution right now and I love it. You posted a baby adoption, a moving testimony from an adopted older child and a family that is in the process of an international adoption. But the best of all was "I don't want my children to be happy". Loved her insights into what is important to communicate and teach children. Well done!

Oh I just love this post, I'm sending it to one of my friends who just adopted and maybe to a lady in my church who wants to adopt or foster.
