Everyone should consider adoption?
Well, perhaps if you are ready to go through some agony.
Orphan care and adoption almost always involve suffering. Just ask any birthmother or a child who is one of three hundred orphans in a Chinese orphanage or a family that is experiencing the high-ups and low-downs of the adoption process or the adoptive family that is overwhelmed by the challenges of the post-adoption journey.
There is no such thing as orphan care and adoption without suffering, according to Together for Adoption.
The upcoming national conference of Together for Adoptionwill focus on both the joys and sufferings involved with adoption.
The primary objective of this organization’s September 14-15 (in Atlanta) national conference is to take Christians deeper into God’s story of adoption to give hope and practical tools to walk with deep joy through “the sufferings of this present time” (Romans 8:18-23) for God’s glory and the good of orphans around the world.
God’s work of adoption within the world is a story that encompasses all of human history, from its pre-temporal beginnings when God predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to the renewal of the heavens and the earth. From the Apostle Paul’s perspective, adoption is the story that makes sense of the universe, that makes sense of our broken lives and gives the existence of all creation ultimate meaning.
