Fertility Fact Friday

Since we are still in November, and since this is National Adoption Awareness Month I thought I’d post a resource on adoption. In my opinion, one of the best Christian resource for adoption is this book:

Called to Adoption: A Christian’s Guide to Answering the Call
by Mardie Caldwell, C.O.A.P with Heather Featherston

Next week I’ll be sharing ‘Our Story of Adoption’. In the meantime I’ll leave you with some thoughts from this book.  If you are in the valley of decision, I hope you’ll purchase made the purchase. I feel it will answer some of the questions you are having and you’ll gain wisdom for the journey too.

If you are in the process of adoption or have recently had a failed adoption attempt, don’t hesitate to contact me on the Contact Page. I’d love to pray for you.

Love y’all!

An excerpt from Called to Adoption: A Christian’s Guide to Answering the Call.

“You may feel as though you must settle for adoption. You cannot do this. A child deserves to have parents who love and cherish him as the most precious gift on earth. If you have unresolved issues about infertility, seek prayer and counseling before you adopt. You may choose to put adoption aside and press on with medical treatment until you have exhausted all options. Then, when you return to take up adoption, you may find, as many people do, that the adoption process is less stressful and more enjoyable than your fertility treatments. If you are not sure you can accept a child who will not inherit your genes, it may help you to talk with other adoptive parents or a counselor.”

This was a really great book! One of the first ones we read before we made any moves and I’m glad we took a moment to read and research because it helps you make a game plan, both tactical and in your heart. It was very helpful!

I agree Hannah. It was a pivotal book in a major decision facing us regarding adoption. I feel it’s one of the premier books for adoption from a Christian standpoint.
