First, let me promise that my blog is not going to become a His Hands advertising billboard! But I figured I should go ahead and wrap up my thoughts that began in my last post. I hope to tell y'all on Friday about how we plan to announce the adoption to our folks, so stay tuned :-)
I love the fact that His Hands, the orphanage we are working with, truly loves and cares for birthmothers. I know they love their adoptive parents too, but it is so important to me that the birthmother of our future child actually be given all of her choices. Through His Hands, women are given a real choice and the support they need to keep their babies, should they choose to do so. Here are some pictures (taken from the His Hands website) of some mothers who remained just that, mothers, thanks to the support of His Hands.
And here are some birthmothers who made the loving choice of adoption.click here.
Today I am praying for the birthmothers around the world. I pray that they all be given the support and love they need to make the best decision for themselves and their babies.
