At a choice point, the decision is made based upon internal resources, perceived needs, and undetected or unresolved fear-based thinking. L Russell
Make no mistake, the gnawing concern you have about the future of our nation is not delusional. America is already in turmoil. When Jeb Bush referred to Donald Trump as “the chaos candidate” he may have been tapping into something more prophetic than he realized. Transformational teacher and thought leader, Dr. Lance Wallnau, offers a timely prophetic blueprint into the state of America and offers a proposed solution that would tip the scales in favor of the nation fulfilling its divine assignment.
In this book you will:
Be awakened to the state of chaos in America that impacts you and your family — learn how your voice can help shape the future.
Discover what America’s “Fourth Crucible” is and how this catalytic moment in history can either make or break the nation.
Receive a vision of hope about America’s unfinished assignment and how this is your call to both prayer and action.
Tune Into the prophetic words about how Donald Trump is a “Cyrus” candidate who would be a wrecking ball to political correctness.
Adoption offers a new life in a new family. New beginnings offer hope for a new future. Adoption indicates a wonderful beginning and time for healing of a child who needs a family. Most of the time adoption includes a wonderful answer for both the parents and the child.
“If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.” Human beings strive to get needs met. Sometimes meeting needs takes longer than expected. When it takes too long (according to expectation) to get the need met one way, ingenuity or opportunity may be used to get the need met a different way. Just as Abraham and Sarah experienced with the birth of Ismael through Sarah’s servant (today her servant would known as a surrogate). We know how that turned out. In the case of a child whose parents or family need rehabilitation, financial assistance, or stability, adoption is a common intervention. In the same way when an infertile person exhausts attempts to become fertile, adoption is a common intervention. Adoption, the panacea for the unmet needs of an “orphan” and infertile person. Not to minimize the amount of money, time, and emotional roller coaster that the adoption process typically entails, this sounds a little too good to be true.
How can meeting the needs of a child through the adoption process be anything but good? How can making parents of someone who has been told they will not be able to conceive or have anymore children be anything but good? When it isn’t good, that’s when. As an adoptive parent shared the other day, “we need far more education than we receive” before completing an adoption. Commonly, adoptive families second guess themselves on whether or not the adoption was a good decision, after the adoption is completed. Second guessing happens when a child doesn’t “feel” like their child; when a child doesn’t behave in a manageable way as a toddler, adolescent, tween or teen; when the realization arises that the child has attachment challenges. Or even when, in an adoption where the information has been shared between the biological family and adoptive family, the adoptive family no longer wants contact. Biological mothers may drop from sight after agreeing to stay in the child’s life. So many variables exist in adoption, and absolutely no guarantees (as with all of life).
How can adoption be a good option when the circumstances require a child to be raised by a nonbiological family? Five ways to know that adoption is a good option.Continue Reading
Adoption funding sites epitomize the essence of child trafficking. Contributing or hosting an adoption funding site supports the idea of taking children from their families and children out of their cultures, creating identity confusion and a lifetime of trauma. Caring about children allows them to be financed in their own families, in their own cultures and helping children stay where their identity has been established. Orphanages in other countries need funding, not children taken. Many families have children in the orphanages because that is the only way they can take care of them and still have them in their lives.
For the love of God, please stop the adoption funding and stop taking children from their families. Help them. Identify a child or children and help them with the money that would be spent on adopting. Send the money regularly. That money will go much further toward a child growing up healthy, educated and giving back to their own culture to make things better in their country. Help families domestically to keep their children, mentor them with parenting skills, help them with housing, help them with taking care of their children while they get their lives together. Please stop taking children that God has placed where He has placed them and believing that adoption is doing something “better” for them than what God intended.
Read Exodus 2 and see how that works out, even when the baby was going to be killed.
