Yesterday we had the privilege of attending Princess Chrissie Patterson's homecoming celebration. As I looked around the room and I saw the many faces of people's live Chrissie had touched. I heard her parents and siblings say many times that they would do it all over and over again- regardless. And, once again I was reminded of the importance of adoption.
God doesn't always promise us a happy ending, but he promises us the best. And Chrissie, regardless of her short time on earth, was the best.
So many times we limit God with our idea's of how things should be and how things should turn out. Chrissie's life was exactly as it was supposed to be. As humans we may never fully understand God's ways-but we can rest in knowing they are perfect every.single.time.
That's why it's so important that we put our worries and our fears aside- shed that the protective coating we wear around our hearts- and do something with the gift of our lives.
Adoption allowed Chrissie to truly live her days on this earth. Adoption was the difference of Chrissie dying alone in an orphanage or having the chance to change the world.
And that is exactly what she did.
Adoption is huge- if you don't believe me- just ask God how important it is to Him.
Watch this video below and then I dare you to get on your knees before the Lord and just ask Him so.
