Adoption is not a one-week mission trip where you come back with a tiny buzz & a cool machete & a few tales of danger or the sadness of poverty. It is the redeeming of a LIFE, forever changed. It costs you more than money: it costs all the days of your lifetime, hard work, tears, sometimes reputation, family, or friends. “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families.” It is guts and glory. Wait for the glory.
