How can I explain my decision to adopt?

Psalm 127:3Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.

Matthew 18:5“And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me.”

If you choose to adopt, some people may not understand that decision. And this is especially true if the child is of different ethnicity than the adoptive parents. In such situations, the best thing you can do is lovingly explain that you made your decision carefully, that God loves all children equally, and that you believe God brought this child to your family for a particular purpose.
