don’t adopt

Adoption is always on my heart.

And yet again, Russell Moore puts into words what I would struggle to say.

‎”Those who see adoption as a warm, sentimental way of having a baby are mistaken and dangerous. There are far too many who plunge in without counsel, without a commitment to fidelity no matter what. They search around for a baby who fits their specifications. And babies never fit your specifications…at least not when they grow up.”
