And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.
– Romans 8:28

Christian adoptive mother and her son

We believe that Mother’s Day is more than simply a day for cards, breakfast in bed, flowers, and lunch reservations. Mother’s Day is a spiritual celebration that finds substantial support in Biblical principles and guidance.

But when you’re in the middle of your adoption wait, Mother’s Day may just feel like a painful reminder that you’ve not yet met the baby God meant for you. We want to help and bless adoptive mothers-in-waiting. Consider this prayer if Mother’s Day has you feeling down:

Dear Lord,
I pray for patience today, for the timing is yours for our adoption.

I pray for wisdom and guidance for what to do and when to do it and for acceptance of the fact you have my adoption all planned out already.

I pray for our child, their birth mother, and for special protection around them, you know where they are and what their needs are, I pray for those needs now.

I pray for the professionals that will help us find each other and for wisdom and discernment for them to do the work they need to help us. I trust you with our adoption. I place my fears at your feet and ask for comfort in my time of waiting.
In His Name Amen.

God Bless you and may Mother’s Day be a day of hope and joy for you, a mother in waiting. Stay strong; know we are praying for you and your adoption. God is faithful and loves you very much, and we do too!
