Matthew 5:44

But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
 - Matthew 5:44

In the adoption world, there tends to be certain individuals that go around hitting adoption blogs and spreading their hatred of adoption.  We have officially been initiated into the club.  And it's ok, but I always think that if we're not being persecuted for something, then we're probably not living our lives radically different enough to please our Lord.  So, unfortunately though, I have to moderate the comments to this blog.  That just means, that once you post a comment, I will get it and approve it as soon as I can so it will show it.  And if you are an adoption-hater, then I will be loving you and praying for you all the more.

  It's so many people with misconceptions about adoption.  That is because the evil one is the king of lies and he of course hates adoption.  Because it brings redemption and wholeness and saves the lives of God's most precious little encourages self-sacrifice and virtue in the adoptive family...all things God wants us to grow in.  It is giving up your life for help another and of course he's going to hate that.  And so he sends out the troops to try to bring adoptive families down.

Please pray, my friends.  Please pray for all those working so hard to open their hearts and homes to children in need.  They need it ;)



  1. Oh yeah, you have crossed into Satan's territory as you move forward to rescue (and forever love) one of his POW! You WILL be in a spiritual battle through this. Cling tight to our Savior and don't let anyone discourage you. It is clear to me that the trolls come out when Satan starts shaking in his boots! Thankfully, we serve a mighty and all powerful God!
