I have been so impressed by you all. We have a lot of followers for a blog that is so new and we have 611 members of the "Promote Oklahoma Adoption Cause" on facebook. But guess what folks, it ain't enough. So what can I say to motivate you to hop on facebook and hit the limit of 60 invites to the cause today? What can I do to get you to pick up the phone and call ANYONE you know who is willing to write a story in ANY media outlet, call a friend who is a representative, call your adoption agency, or write an "article" for this blog? I sat here tonight - praise songs in the background trying to write something special, to get your attention....and then it came to me....Adoption, well it is biblical...
James 1:27 says, "religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
Not everyone is called to adopt. Sometimes I think I should and sometimes I think it isn't what God wants for my family. But this I know, I am called to look after orphans. I do it in my job, I have adopted members in my family, and I am CALLED to do something. Today - what are you called to do? Want to adopt? Contact an Agency. Want to change the law? Send us an e-mail, we can give you assignments. Want to contribute? Donate money so someone who can't afford, has the finances to adopt. Want to love? Consider fostering. But my friends, you are called to do something. And on a weekend where we celebrate the fact that our Father gave everything so that we might be saved and adopted into his family, what will you do, so that a little one has hope.....hope of a family?
