So Much To Be Thankful For!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our ICM families!  Whether you are currently an adoptive family, in the process of adopting, or thinking about adoption, we all have so much to be thankful for!  I just wanted to discuss two things that are constantly in my mind when I am giving God thanks.

1.  We can all be grateful that our Heavenly Father adopted us into His spiritual family, and welcomed us as His sons and daughters.  We have such a rich inheritance!  He calls us His own, and loves us unconditionally!

2.  We can all be grateful for the freedom and blessings that we so often take for granted in the United States! As I am constantly reminded of the destitute situations of many orphans, I am humbled by the thought of how blessed we truly are, and how often I take this for granted.

As you go about your Thanksgiving day celebrations, we do need to give thanks for all God has blessed us with, but I encourage each of you to take time to pray for the children of our world, and that God would continue to encourage the hearts of Christians all over our world… that we would take action and “defend the cause of the fatherless.” 

Happy Thanksgiving!
