One of the questions we get asked the most is: “Why adopt from Africa? There are so many kids here in America that need help, why not help one of those?” The simple answer to these questions is…We weren’t called to adopt a child from America. We are called to adopt a child from Africa.
I was talking with a friend recently about how we get asked this all the time, and she said, “Jeanette, you don’t have the calling to adopt domestically. There are others called for that. Don’t worry, someone else will accept that calling.” Honestly, most of the time I don’t think about it, I just think about traveling to Africa and all the steps we have to take to get to get our little girl. ANYWAYS, the whole point of this story is God calls us to different things. As of right now we are called to adopt internationally, we are called to go to Africa and get our child, to support and care for orphans. A couple weeks ago we got to witness God speak to a couple’s heart as He called them to adopt domestically. It was just a really neat thing to sit back and watch because it was like God showing me, “Look Jeanette, I am taking care of my children here as well as those in Africa. I am in control. Just sit back, trust me, and do what I asked you do to.” I love that! I love when He just shows himself to me over and over.
