I remember how afraid I was to have the 'talk' with Tony about adoption, especially, when I felt God was leading towards international adoption. We were getting older and into our middle-class 'rhythim'. Ha! Are you serious?!
What's interesting is more and more, I end up finding wives who are the first to feel the initial prompting. Some husbands end up being on-board right away or over a shorter period of time and others need some time to digest it and allow God to lead them to that place. Each couple's story is a little different. Regardless of the difference, someone needs to initiate the conversation to see if this is where God is leading your family.
Perhaps if you're concerned about your current age, you'll decide to adopt an older child. Maybe you don't feel called to adopt but you can pray about whether you should be a foster parent on some level.
What's your hold-up? What has you shaking in your knees? Who/what has you fearful? Trust me, I understand the questions. We've had hundreds ourselves. Maybe after seeking God, you'll get a 'No'. BUT what IF, a 'YES' is waiting on the other side of your prayer?
Let's talk about it....you just may be missing out on one of the greatest opportunities of your life.
