Good article on adoption

I think I will be skipping this week's "Hey! That's Handmade". Look for the next installment sometime after the new year! :o)

Someone on a forum posted this awesome article on adoption. I gleaned so much from it and had to share.

"Whether our background is Norwegian or Haitian or Indonesian, if we are united to Christ, our family genealogy is found not primarily in the front pages of our dusty old family Bible but inside its pages, in the first chapter of the Gospel of Matthew."

Don't you just love that? This article has so much good insight into adoption in both the spiritual and physical sense. The author speaks of his and his wife's experience adopting two sons from Russia, the rude questions people asked them concerning the adoptions, and the spiritual journey that followed.

It is a very long article, but a great read that I know you will enjoy whether you long to adopt or not. After all, if you are His, you are adopted.

If you decide to read it, please let me know what you think!

That is a really good quote. I'll try to get on over to read the article. Hope you had a good Christmas.

I liked the article- it was an interesting perspective. We really are all adopted (or grafted) into God's family tree. :)

Hi Crystal! I skimmed the article because I'm on my way out the door. I will read it more in-depth later. We are starting the international adoption process this year and I'm so excited! I think the quote you posted is exactly right. It doesn't matter the color of our skin or anything else!
