Here are 7 reasons why you should consider beginning the adoption process in 2010. While they are simplistic and overlapping at points, each represents an eternal truth or significant reality that has transformed me and my family over the last year.

  1. Adoption is a reflection of God’s grace to us in Christ.
  2. You were once Fatherless and now have a Father.
  3. You were once without a family and now have a family.
  4. Adoption is the wisdom of God’s mission in the world. (Ephesians 3:10)
  5. Adoption is an aspect of true religion. (visiting orphans)
  6. There are 145 million orphans and vulnerable children in the world, who Jesus considers His brother and sisters.
  7. The sacrificial love and patience involved in adoption will transform you and your family.
