A baby is a gift from God. Some people that can spit them out left and right, sometimes doesn’t seem to understand that. I hate to say it that way but I work in the Public School system. Trust me, kids deal with many things an adult should not be faced with, let alone a child! As a mother that tried for 8 grueling years, they are truly a gift from God. I wished all saw it that way, but I also believe there are orphans for a reason. The Bible states, in James 1:27 (NIV) “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
I truly believe there are amazing, incredible people that aren’t able to have children are meant to adopt and look after the orphans as the Bible states. I believe God has a divine purpose for all. Not everyone can accept someone else’s child as their own, but those facing infertility, that is the first thing they look at. They open their beautiful, servant hearts to the orphans that need parents.
If everyone could easily have a child, there would never be a home for orphans. At least, far fewer than the ones that truly want to be a parent at all costs. We must believe in God’s divine intervention….He always has a purpose. Yes, it took 8 years to have a child, but it makes me so much more thankful for my son now. I thank God nightly over him every single night as I check on him, on my way to my bedroom for the night. It also makes me a better special education teacher, because no matter the severity of their disabilities, they are still a gift and blessing!
These babies are blessings, regardless of the situation. I can remember 15 years ago, I was at my husbands work hosted family gathering. I had a severely autistic young boy walked right up to me and gave me a hug. I felt the Holy Spirit. I was immediately at peace. I had been touched by an angel. The Mom quickly apologized to me….there was no need, this little boy has blessed immediately with his touch. I felt renewed, at peace, and joy in my heart. That hug was a gift I will never forget.
For those that are dealing with infertility, I pray for you. I also want you to understand God has a purpose for all. If we had, had a baby at the young age we started trying, that child would have went through many trials with us. That baby would have had to move across the U.S. away from family for a year, struggle to feed that child, and would lived a hell, like we did during that time. No, God made it happen when we were the most fortunate in our lives. We had good jobs, stability, and a good life. We were happy and were able to provide anything that precious little boy of ours needed. You never know when life will take a sudden turn, but always remember this…give God time to do his magic. When you can’t see his plans, He is still at work. He is still at work at the best of your interest. Don’t give up. If you truly want something, give in the time, work, and research to make it happen. If it doesn’t feel right or sound right by the medical profession or adoption agency, follow that instinct. It’s the Holy Spirit leading you through this time of difficulty.
