As believers, adoption should not be motivated by what we think we want for our family, but rather by what the Lord wants for our family. Sometimes, those end up going hand-in-hand, and that is great!! BUT other times, our will and our desire is not in line with what the Lord would have for us. And I will be the first to tell you that it is HARD. And I will also be the first to tell you that that is GOOD.
