The Heart of Adoption

"Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,"  Ephesians 1:5


I've always had a soft spot in my heart for children, especially babies. I've only somewhat thought about adoption; I have a couple cousins, friends, etc that were adopted. I babysit a couple of kids that were adopted. My church has tons of people that were adopted/ have adopted. My husband on the other hand has been surrounded by adoption. His extended family owns an adoption agency in the Ukraine (soon to be the only one there); he has an adopted cousin and uncle (on different sides of the family). 

I feel like adoption is a great way to prove to children that you love them too. I read a story recently that just made me smile: 

What It Means to Be Adopted: Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had a different color hair than the other family members. One child suggested that he was adopted and a little girl named Jocelynn Jay said, "I know all about adoptions because I was adopted." "What does it mean to be adopted?" asked another child. "It means," said Jocelynn, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy." 

I just love this story.  It's how I want my son(s) and daughter(s) to feel about their adoption into our family!
