Why can't adopting be easy and inexpensive?

By Lonny:
I have had this question cross my mind many times. I don't claim to know all of the answers but I did have this thought. Maybe God knows that true happiness and joy comes with hard work and sacrifice.
It has been such a wonderful experience for us to be part of our friends experience adopting these two children: People have been so generous with time, clothing, baked goods, and, of course, money. As I watch the money being raised I see in all of those involved, " when we're helping we're happy". I think that God often gives us these impossible situations so that we have to work together to solve them. In working together and serving each other we develop a greater love for each other and find much more happiness in life.


  1. We are in the process of adopting two boys from Russia. They both have heart conditions. Is this blog a website to help families adopt?

  2. It is, but is in an exploritory phase. Eventually, we hope to have a fund started that families like yourself could apply to for help. Keep checking back.
