According to the National Council for Adoption, and the National Adoption Center, November is National Adoption Month.
Each year at this time, I am reminded of the how great the restoration power of God is. You see, I am adopted. But to understand the restoration that occurred, you have to understand how the journey began.
In the 1960’s, it was taboo to be pregnant and unmarried, and to be 16 and pregnant, and to drop out of high school because you were pregnant. Well, that was my mother. At 16 she found herself very pregnant and kicked out of her home.
When she delivered it was well before the days of ultrasounds (and abortion I should add) and to her surprise there were two of us; yes twins! She had two little twin girls.
Well at the young age she was, she tried, but could not do all that needed to be done and ultimately gave us to our grandmother. Well, she also tried and was unable and ultimately delivered us to an orphanage at a very young age. In fact, my first real memory is screaming, pleading and begging for our granny to not leave us.
Before you think this is a sad story – just hold on – God does show up!
