The Road Goes Ever On and On

the road goes ever on and on

After the unbelievably loving response that I got from Tuesday’s post, I have to start this post with a thank you to my readers! I can’t count the messages, comments, texts, and emails that I got from you guys, all sending prayers our way. It just goes to show that I wasn’t kidding about that Romans 12:15 stuff, you guys have that verse written on your hearts.

I thought that now would be a good time to let you guys know some more specific ways you can be praying for us during this next step of our adoption.

Adoption isn’t easy.

For us, adopting isn’t just about adding children to our family. We believe that God calls us to care for orphans (Isaiah 1:17, James 1:27), and we believe that these easily overlooked embryonic orphans are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27, Psalm 139:13-16).

The Embryo Adoption Process

Since Embryo Adoption isn’t very common, I thought I’d outline the general process for you guys. Our adoption agency, Nightlight, also does domestic and international adoptions. There aren’t a lot of laws regarding embryo adoptions, so they try to keep the embryo adoption process as close to a regular adoption as possible. The home study, education requirements, and matching process are all very similar to any other domestic adoption.
