1) Every child deserves a loving, forever home. Their lives
are like they are usually through no fault of their own. We live in a fallen,
broken world. Adoption is necessary because the world isn’t perfect. A loving
home can make all the difference to their young lives.
2) Every child needs hope. Children, as opposed to babies,
are more aware of the circumstances that made them need a new home. This
knowledge, but necessarily understanding, can cause them to feel afraid,
confused, and hopeless. When a child has someone to love them unconditionally,
proved them security and boundaries, and offer them hope, they can have the
potential of a better future.
3) Your life will be changed. In the adoption process, no matter
the age of the child being adopted, you will be stretched beyond what you think
you can handle. You will learn to look at life through the eyes of the precious
children. You will learn from their hurts and try to ease them. You may be
injured as they lash out in protection of their little hearts—daring you to try
to love them. You will be amazed at the resilience of the children. You will
have to continually offer self-less love. You will be forever changed by the
presence of a child.
These are just a few reasons you should adopt a child--Loving
homes. Needed hope. Lives changed.
