Ornaments for Adoption

I cannot begin to tell you how excited and blessed I am to participate in Ornaments for Adoption. When Megan first contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in fundraising for the Brock family, I did not hesitate, because I know first-hand how hard it is to sacrifice and somehow stretch an already tight budget to bring a child into a forever family. As most of you know, our family has been called to adopt from Ethiopia, so this fundraiser holds a special place in our heart because we are very passionate about providing orphans with a forever home.

It has been my experience so far in our own adoption journey that God often provides the funds through people like me and you- strangers who have no personal ties to the adoptive family- but who understand that the church is obligated to care for the least of these, as Jesus commanded. {For a list of Biblical references on the Church’s responsibility to care for the orphaned, visit my orphan care/adoption page}.

 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress... James 1:27

Most of us will begin, if we haven’t already, Christmas shopping for our loved ones. Why not give a double blessing this year? When you purchase an ornament through Ornaments for Adoption, you will not only bless your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, with an adorable custom made ornament, but you will bless this precious family with the means to bring their child home.

The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ Matthew 25:40

Will you pause for a moment and contemplate how different your life would be if you did not have the love of a family? Will you give the gift of a family this year?
