DH and I went out for dinner last night. Our conversation was good and one topic that we discussed was adoption,shocker I know. We already knew the final answer is "God's plan" but we discussed how strange it really is that he and I have adopted two children from China. Really there is no "manly" rhyme or reason to it. Some folks tell how they were always facinated/interested in Asian culture, some had others connections to China so for them China was a logical country to adopt. But not us. We had talked early in our marriage about adoption but really a Central or South American adoption would have been more logical.DH is from the west coast so his exposure to Hispanic culture was everyday. His best friend is of Mexican heritage with a large loving vibrant family.Greg spent many days in their home. We both love Spanish culture and the language. So why China?
And on the flip side why has China allowed so many of their children to be adopted into the US, many into Christian families? Why is this door open for us? How long will the door stay open? There are always rumors of international adoption (IA) being closed. But not for us. We have the most beautiful girls in the world that we call our daughters.But why, what is China thinking? After all the years of isolation? Oh, I do not know. I read and read to try to grasp some answers. Both for me to understand and because I owe it to my girls.
But in the end I do know the answer-GOD. He always has a plan. Could I have ever imagined this for us? No, but it is so right!
Guess it is human nature to ponder the what ifs or whys...
Adoption is Not the Gospel
