I love what the psalmist pens in the 113 chapter of Psalms. He zooms out to view big picture, who is like God? Nothing on earth nor in heaven can compare with Him! The culmination of kings, governments & world powers throughout history never have or will touch the fringe of His magnificence! The writer then zooms in. In the grander of God’s glory, HE brings Himself low to rescue the outcast from the ashes. He has several connections, a few friends owe Him a favor. In seconds, the orphan is seated at a table of royalty. I take that back, the orphan becomes royalty. Heaven rejoices and the barren sings!
4-9 God is higher than anything and anyone,
outshining everything you can see in the skies.
Who can compare with God, our God,
so majestically enthroned,
Surveying his magnificent
heavens and earth?
He picks up the poor from out of the dirt,
rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash,
Seats them among the honored guests,
a place of honor among the brightest and best.
He gives childless couples a family,
gives them joy as the parents of children.
Hallelujah! (Psalm 113:4-9, The Message)
We want to say a special thank-you to our panel who shared their individual stories at our adoption/foster care clinic! Each story of adoption and foster care is extremely different and unique. Our stories involved local adoptions to international adoptions, temporary home placements to permanent. Also, we were blessed to hear from a birth mom share about her personal journey of adopting her new born son out to a wonderful family eleven years ago. It’s amazing to see the redemptive acts of God unfold in each story!
Join us Saturday March 14, 2009 from 930am-1200 as we host a clinic on Adoption and Foster Care. Our purpose is to bring awareness and support to those interested in adoption and foster care. We will have a panel available for testimonies, plus Q & A. For more information please call us at (208)888.1060 and ask for Kate Wilson. Admission is FREE.
Actor Kirk Cameron and his wife, actress Chelsea Noble, may have welcomed their four oldest children — Jack, 11, Isabella, 10, Anna, 9, and Luke, 7 — by adoption, but the 37-year-old makes it a point to tell his children how much they were wanted.
Adoption is so special. My adopted kids know that they’re in our family because we wanted them to be in our family. We chose them. That’s something special that every adopted child can know. They didn’t have to be adopted by their parents. They really wanted them.
They’re just my kids. Literally, I forget who’s adopted and who’s not. It really doesn’t seem like that. They’re my kids, I’m their dad and Chelsea’s their mom. It’s just a great, wonderful way to not only have a family yourself but meet a real need in the lives of so many of these orphans.
Kirk and Chelsea are also parents to Olivia, 6, and James, 5, and with six kids in one household, there is always a lot going on.
My son Jack is 11, and he’s into music and Legos. My daughters are into ballet and singing. My littlest one, she wants to be a farmer. She wants to be Fern from Charlotte’s Web. She’d like to have a cow and a goat and a goose and a rat and a spider. And my other little guys, they love racecars and power tools and catching lizards.
