It is estimated that 140 million children worldwide are orphans, (UNICEF). We know that not all families who desire to, are actually able to adopt. We also know that no more than 2% of Americans have actually adopted, but more than 1/3 of Americans consider it.
One of the biggest barriers for families is the financial cost - let alone the tight government rules of different countries raising the qualifications of who can and can't adopt from their country, along with the practical aspect of gathering any and all documents required to prove that you are safe, responsible, credible, and suitable parents.
With joy and anticipation, as well as feelings of being overwhelmed and anxious, we are adopting for the second time.
Hezekiah (Kai) was adopted domestically in 2015 from the state of North Carolina. Our oldest son, Ezekiel (Zeke) was born biologically. Now we are in pursuit, being led by the Lord, to adopt a little girl from the country of Colombia. Danny and I have been married for 8 years, and could have never dreamed of this family that God designed for us. We are compelled by what we have received: "For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!" (Romans 8:15)
"But to all who receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God" John 1:12
