Soap Box….

Okay its my blog/soapbox..so if you dont like what I write…I guess you dont read it, right?

Here it is…

I think every family should adopt. I do.
Money isnt a problem…its an excuse.
Time isnt an issue..its an excuse.
Too old isnt an issue….its an excuse.

If you may be using one of these excuses… I wish you would reconsider.

My heart right now is being pulled towards to Korea.

Right now I know of three 13 year old kids..2 girls and 1 boy in China. They will age out of the orphanage this year. Guess will they go…the streets. They already have an X on them because of being orphans in an Asian country, they probably have a minor disability so there is another X. Would Jesus turn his back on them?

In Korea, there are many little ones on the Waiting Child list that are in foster homes. But guess how long good foster homes last in Korea…about 3-4 years. At that age..not only do they lose a loving family, they go to an institution. Yes, an orphanage for the rest of their lives!!!!! Think of the difference you could make on just one little orphan in this world.

I am so tired of hearing people complain about not having kids or sad because they can only have 1 or 2 kids. THERE could be a reason. Your child could have been born already and be waiting for you anywhere..here in the US, China, Korea, India, Africa…anywhere….pray about it.

You may think you dont have time, or the interest, or your desire isnt there.

BUT do you think Jesus had the time or the interest or the desire to bear a cross on his back….and then to be nailed to it for our sins. To where a crown of thorns..to sweat blood..for a bunch of ungrateful people.
NO!! BUT Jesus did…it wasnt convenienet or what he was hoping to do that day.

Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, to let the little children come to him. Are you saying that?
Jesus said in John 14:18, I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you. Are you coming?

Okay stepping down off my blogbox….:)

  1. Great post! When I am with my Korean born daughter and my three bio children are not with me people assume she is our only child, that perhaps we could not have children biologically. Then, when I say we do have bio children they assume they are all boys and we adopted because we wanted a daughter. Actually, we have two boys and a girl and still felt God was calling us to adopt.Some people still don't get why we chose adoption.

  2. I am clapping right now! lolI feel the same way. I read this somewhere and it really has touched my heart:"If only 7% of the 2 billion people who claim to be Christian chose to adopt ONE child, all 143 million of the world's orphans would have a permanent safe home and a family to call their own."
