prayer and encouragement for your adoption waitWait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
-Psalms 27:14

We live in a fast-paced world that seems to only be getting faster. News from a faraway country used to take weeks or months to be delivered. Now it can arrive instantly via email. As we’ve grown faster, we’ve grown more impatient with waits, delays, or simply the time it takes to make something happen. If only adoption could be completed at lightning speed.

I challenge you to not view your adoption wait as a delay. Your mindset about this time will play a great role in how you walk through this journey and what you accomplish during these days. God has given you this time for a reason and your task is to use it for His purpose. Spend time in prayer discerning His plan for your days of waiting.

This adoption encouragement was excerpted from our Founder Mardie Caldwell’s newest book, Called to Adoption. This Christian adoption book is for couples who are seeking to learn about the miracle of families created through adoption.
