My friend Leah wrote this post back in February and I came across it today. “But you CHOSE this.” It covers a topic that every single adoptive family we know has struggled with to some degree. Please read it and then ask yourself if you truly got it when Jesus’ own brother said…. James 1:26-27 If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means CARING FOR ORPHANS and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
