I am part of a website that adoption agencies can post 'birth mother' situations looking for adoptive families. There have been a few situations we probably would have sent our profile to, but the fees these agencies are charging are so high! Many are double what we were expecting to pay! It is so sad that adoption has turned into such an 'industry'. It's sad. There are children that need homes, and families that would love to adopt. I wonder how many families considering adoption, don't, because of the high fees. I read on an adoption blog that of the 34% of Christian families considering adopting, only 1% actually does.
Thanks everybody for your prayers and words of encouragement! We really appreciate it! It is good to be reminded that God is control of all of this. I was reading in Proverbs the other day when I was feeling discouraged about the recent happenings. This commonly used verse really gave me peace.
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
