I don't want one over four.

I don’t want one over four

Matthew 18:12-14 
 What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray and gets lost, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountain and go in search of the one that is lost?  And if it should be that he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not get lost. Just so it is not the will of My Father Who is in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost and perish.

How it all began. God spoke to my heart about the nature of adoption,our adoption. Isn’t God so personal? He is so real in our lives, let Him into yours and watch Him move mountains.

I thought about adopting today. 
I saw a sweet baby far far away. 
I know that you needed someone to hold you. Pick you up, feed you and warm you. 
There is a waiting list for the perfect healthy you . 
Your eyes are bright and your affordable too!
I want to adopt and this is just swell! 
A healthy baby fills the space in this family as well! 
If I sit any longer and search for a child, I may be persuaded to adopt someone else. 
So, I better stop looking as I see some grim truth about kids older than you.
Your all orphans and really quite poor, but there’s something here about the lot of you older than four.
It says you get left behind, forgotten or lost. 
My heart cant bear to read the truth of your cause.
I know its my right to choose who I want! 
Don’t make me feel guilty for going after what I want! 
Wait Lord, Im sorry, I see its not guilt. 
Your showing me more than what most people see. 
Its the the heart of that lost baby..still waiting for me. 
He may not be small or even so clean. 
But this is our baby and now he is thirteen.
