It's natural to want to spread the news of a newborn's arrival. What about adoption? Seven years ago, my wife and I adopted two beautiful teenagers from Ukraine to join our existing family of six.
What were we thinking?
Aside from the incredible theological ramifications of being adopted by our Heavenly Father, James 1:27 came in to play - undefiled religion is equated to loving on widows and orphans.
Bringing Alexa and Jessica into the family brought many blessing. Alexa is third going left to right, and Jessica is sixth. At the time of their arrival we were excited just as if we had newborns. CrinkledNose.com would have been our choice to print our adoption announcements; it just didn't exist at the time.
