Waiting Child Series Wrap Up

I hope you have enjoyed reading all these amazing stories about these amazing families as much as I have!  But, even more than that, I hope they have made you think about and evaluate your life.  Are you shaken by what you've read?  My prayer is that after reading the series, someone will feel led to pray and consider bringing an orphan into their family to be an "orphan no more".  Is it you?!

If you are thinking, maybe this is right for our family, but where do we begin?  Here is some advice:

  • First of all, pray!  Make sure it is a clear calling from God.
  • Secondly, do your research.  There are great resources on-line that talk about different countries and outline their policies and procedures regarding adopting a waiting child.  Three of these are

  • Third, contact others who have adopted from waiting lists (feel free to use their blog links on their stories) or agencies.  All agencies have waiting children and should be happy to talk to you about the children on their waiting lists and their procedures.
So, what are your thoughts?  Did you enjoy the series?  Are you inspired?  Is God calling you to consider the possibility of adopting a waiting child?  Please leave your comments and let me know your thoughts!  I'd love to pray for you as you either consider the possibility or as you support those who are adding to their families. :)

Thanks for reading!
