The expenses to adopt a child, domestic or international, can be enough to keep a willing family from even pursuing the possibility. I do believe that God is able to provide for any calling He places in someone's heart. And just maybe this business will be the way He provides for a family to adopt a child! All for His glory!
God's heart is for adoption.
"God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, so He might redeem those under the law, that we might recieve the adoption as sons."
"as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God."
Jesus said, "I will not leave you as orphans..."
God has set the example of adoption through His Son, Jesus Christ. It is through His death and His resurrection that we can be called His child, His son or daughter, and receive the inheritance due a child of God, eternal life! We are redeemed through the blood of Christ! And when an orphaned child is adopted in to a loving family, this is an example of what God has done for all of us, if we choose to accept Christ as Lord.
I am praying that God would direct me specifically where to give the funds made through my boutique, and if a specific family is ever in need and the Lord confirms it, then that is where I will give! I know God wants to use each of us in the community around us to reach out and support one another. That really is what the church is all about, how God intended it to be. We are supposed to be His hands and His feet. He desires to reach everyone, every single person. And we have the privilege of being a part of reaching out to others and touching their lives, if we are willing and available!
With that being said, if you or another family is seeking to adopt and looking for a way to pay for an adoption, please contact us! Hubby and I would love to meet you, pray with you, support and encourage you in any way we can. If the Lord's will is for us to support financially then we will. Our heart's desire is to make the expense part of the adoption process less of a burden. So that the family and the child can focus on the transition and everything else that goes along with it.
