Adoption, probably not the first option for most but sometimes it might be the only option.

Adoption. Probably not the first option for most but sometimes it might be the only option. In my case, my parents already had two kids and wanted a third but couldn't have another child. Yes, I am adopted. In this article I am going to give you ten reasons why you should adopt.

1. It will help a child in need.

When it comes to adoption, some families adopt because they know a child that is in need. Also, they may adopt a child from another country in order to save a child from a life of poverty.

2. Every child deserves a family.

Can you imagine a life without a family? Some children are born into this world without one and sometimes both parents. In some cases, the mother may pass away due to childbirth and occasionally the child is rejected by the father so as a result the child is left without a family.

3. Adopted children might adopt a child in the future.

I know for a fact that myself personally will adopt a child once I get married. Adoption changed my life for the good. Yes, sometimes it has its issues but what family doesn't? I love being adopted. I want to be able to give a child a life like mine.

4. The need for people to adopt is increasing instead of decreasing.

There are more kids now being abandoned or their parents dying than ever before. Not just in third world countries but also here in the United States. My adoption took place in Athens, Alabama. I was brought home from the hospital by my adopted family which doesn't happen quite often.

5. You get to see a living example of how we are adopted into God's family.

In Ephesians 1:4-6 it says "Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son."

6. You can give a child a brighter future.

Some children who have yet to be adopted don't have the chance to go to school or achieve dreams or goals they have set. Its even harder for the older children to go to college and get a degree.

7. You can give a child hope.

Most of the children lose hope after a certain point of ever getting adopted and having a family. Once you do adopt that child, the hope floods back into their lives and they start hoping for other things like a pet or a car.

8. You can keep a child out of the streets.

We always tend to wonder where most of our homeless population comes from. Who would have thought that some of them have been on the streets since they were young. By adopting a child you could help our homeless population from growing and you can give a child a home and family.

9. You can show a child what love is like.

Some children, depending on where they are before they are adopted, don't really know what love feels like when it comes to having a family. In some children's homes they are treated more like objects than people. Can you imagine what it would feel like to grow up never knowing what it felt like to have your mother hug you and to feel the love radiating off of her as she wrapped her arms around you?


It's hard to know that without having a child. For example, the joy a father sees in his sons eyes as he takes him to his first baseball game. Or for me, when my parents saw my eyes light up the first time I ever rode a horse. There are so many memories in life that having a child can offer.

So, why not adopt?

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
