 Family Life Interview

Today I gave an interview over the phone for a radio show called "Hope for Orphans" with Dennis Rainey for Family Life. It was recorded for future use and they may or may not use my portion for there were many different people who were scheduled to call in. Here is a portion of the interview that I prepared from a Christian's perspective, knowing that there are many non-Christians who adopt as well.

"The story of adoption is a model of Christianity. We, the Gentiles or non-Jewish people, were outside of the first covenant God made with the Jews; we were not his chosen people. But through His Son Jesus Christ and his sacrifice, we have been adopted into His family forever if we choose to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for our sins. We become part of a huge family of brothers and sisters in Christ and share a common bond through the Holy Spirit. This bond crosses all the boundaries that separate the world and brings us together as one people, regardless of nationality or race. If God loved the whole world enough to send His only Son to die so that we could become a part of His family, then we too should display the same type of love towards others. It is this love that will cause you to reach out and care for someone who needs it, to bring someone without a home into your own, and to mother or father a child who has neither. It is this type of love that will break your heart but also fill it up with limitless joy and happiness."

I think you just explained the spirit of adoption in one short paragraph. We're praying for you and Anita. Your travel dates will be here before you know it. Can't wait to follow you to Mikayla.
