My HIV Blessing

22 Oct

When we considered (or wrestled) with the thought of adopting a HIV child, I remember thinking that God was really asking us to “step out” in faith for Him.  I (pridefully) thought that we were doing something amazing for God…parenting a HIV orphan. 

Now many months later…I see things more clearly.  Adopting our daughter really wasn’t about “a big step of faith” for God.  We did not do any “great work” for Him. 

It was about a gift.  A gift He had for us.  (A gift I can’t imagine missing out on!) 

Thank you God for your gift, this precious child that you have given me the privilege to call my own.
