Recently several of my friends participated in a 31 day blogging challenge. (They were awesome- check them out- www.joelandkitty.com & http://cevallosfamilyadoption.com/ )This made me miss our family's blog and also what the point of our blog was. The point of our blog- Our Giant Leap of Faith- was to share our journey of adoption and then share the things God was doing in our lives. God has brought us so much joy by allowing us to be Marcus's parents and we want to share that joy with others. We want other people to have the opportunity to enjoy the adventures we do!
"Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13, 14 ESV)
This past year we were able to walk with some awesome parents through their adoption journey. I want more people to have the opportunity to learn about adoption and orphan care and the different ways to get involved. So...in honor of Adoption Awareness Month I am jumping back in! I want this blog to encourage others to take they giant leap of faith! We are NOT all called to adopt, but we are all called to care for orphans:
"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world." (James 1:27 ESV)
If there is something you see on here one day that you would like more information about please contact me! I am so passionate about this subject!
For now I will leave you with this...my favorite little boy enjoying his "Yay you did it!!" potty training treat:
