Adopted

My wife and I spent a wonderful evening with a couple and their 4 year old boy. They were in the process of adoption and for traditional Chinese parents, that subject is almost like drinking poison. They are totally against it and talking about it is like talking to a brick wall. But my friends really have a heart for children and they proceeded. They really want a combination of natural and adopted children. They currently live in their parent’s house and they felt so strong about this that if the parents gave opposition to this, they would move out of their parent’s house. My heart goes out to them. They are an amazing couple dedicated to Christ and God.

I know another lady at the rec center who has 3 Chinese adopted grandchildren. They are the cutest and most wonderful children you have ever seen. The parents really have a heart for children and it is amazing the sacrifice they made in order to get these children. I think there are many fathers and mothers in this world, but not enough daddies and mommies. It is a Godly privilege to take care of any child. I know another couple that has gone through IVF and many other procedures. The cost is devastating and the pain on the wife is just too enormous to bear. The husband does not believe in adoption and sticks to traditional Chinese ways. They are a good couple and I hope one day they see it is a privilege to take care of any child to glorify God.

Then I think about God. He has a heart for the children in his family. They say we need to be like Christ and God. Didn’t he adopt us to be the children in his family? We all were supposed to perish because all have fallen short. We all deserve death but Christ sacrificed His life in order for us to have life with an awesome and amazing God. Look at the sacrifice God made in order to adopt us as his children. My admiration and my heart go to parents who adopt children. It is not easy and it is a rough road to live. Their hearts are enormous and overflowing with love. The next time you see parents with adopted children thank them and remember that God loves you the same way. His love is like an overflowing ocean and it will never ever stop flowing. That is why Love conquers all.

In Christ,
Stan Yee
