Inspirational Christian music artists Mercy Me and Rebecca St. James will be performing next Thursday, January 20th at Shoreline Church in Austin, TX. Two tickets were given to us for the work we do in adoption and we would like to pass this gift on to our faithful fans.*
We’ve been helping children find forever families for 130 years and we don’t plan on slowing down. We believe that every child needs a stable place to call home and a loving family to nurture them. Since this ministry began, we’ve placed over 7,400 children in caring adoptive homes. There are dozens of reasons why people choose to adopt a child, but one idea unites them all: adoption demonstrates God’s love.
“… God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. 6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.” (Galatians 4: 5-7)
God loves us so much that he paid the ultimate price to bring us into his family. What a great blessing to demonstrate this saving love by rescuing a child from abandonment!
Of course, we are not all called to adopt, but you can support adoption in many ways, like introducing the possibility to friends and family, providing respite care for newly adoptive parents, and raising awareness in your circles of influence.
* You can take a first step today by “liking” or commenting on this post on our facebook page. This will help us spread the word about adoption AND enter you in a drawing to win the concert tickets. By “liking” the post, you will be entered once, for adding a comment, you will be entered a second time. We will randomly draw and announce the winner on Tuesday, January 18th.
Thank you for supporting adoption!
