Two years ago I sat in an auditorium listening to incredible talks from pastors, people leading the charge in the realm of orphan care, those who were once orphans and adopted and those who had adopted their own children. My heart was so anxious to be an adoptive mom and all the unexpected things that I knew the journey would have in store. (I had signed up for that conference before we even knew we would be in the adoption process. How perfect is his timing.)
This morning I sat and listened to the live stream video from the Orphan Care Summit with my sweet son on my lap. The same sweet boy I had prayed would actually become a part of our family. You never know what God has in store and I’m so thankful that adoption has been a part of it.
This is the first year that they’ve live streamed the conference and I’m so glad they have. I wish I could go every year. It is encouraging, challenging and a reminder that God has called each and everyone of us to be caring for the orphan and for those in need. There is an avenue for each of us to care and serve in some way.
If you get a chance definitely listen in tomorrow. You won’t regret it. I’m so glad I have. I can’t wait to hear what’s in store for tomorrow. Here’s the link.
