What God is Sayin' to Me...

1). "I have given you many children. Enjoy them. Pour yourself into them. Be faithful with what (whom) you have been given". (I already do this, but I know I can do much better).

2). "It is time to lay down the idol of adoption" (it had become that to me).

I will be figuring out a fun way to give away (if the recipient will pay shipping) all of my adoption books and resources and a few (OK, lots) of cute shoes and a few outfits.

Here is an example of one of my favorite books--so cute (I have the Vietnamese one)--and it's on back order status at Powell's in Portland.

If you have a suggestion about how to do this, leave a comment. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure God can handle it.

Look for more soon! (excited clapping)

I am finally able to do this, say this and mean this---

It's gonna be OK.

I can so relate to this post. It can become idolatry. I had to let soccer go for that reason too. I know it sounds silly, but it started to rule our family's life. Adoption has long been a place I've been struggling with. Is God going to allow me more? I believe He puts on the heart of those willing, the orphans. We KNOW it's HIS heart. I don't think it is for nothing. One of my best friends adopted Mia's cribmate, at age 50. She's LOVING it! Don't give up hope unless God tells you to let it go.
