Sometimes this site can get pretty intense, with feelings on both sides of adoption. I have an idea, and if you choose not to do this that is fine, but please only positive things today. What is one thing that you are the most thankful for in your life. And if thumbs down could be avoided today that would be wonderful, because everyone has a right to be thankful for whatever they desire to be thankful for.

I have done something this year that has proven to be very wonderful. Every day this month I have thought about something that I am thankful for. For me it has reminded me of the things that God has done for me, and how grateful I am , even when things don't go the way that I want them too. Has anyone ever found something to be grateful for in the hard times? We can be thankful IN all circumstances even when we cannot be thankful FOR all circumstances.18 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago

I have had many people here tell me that I am living in denial because I say that I had a great adoption experience. I am not saying that some people have not had bad experiences, and I don't tell them they are living in denial. If I did not think adoption was a good thing, do you think that I would have gone ahead and adopted 2 children myself?38 AnswersAdoption1 decade ago

Also we can show God that we love Him, by living our lives to please Him, and obeying His word
"our relationship with Christ, is not as important as our being a reflection of Christ".
I think our relationship with Christ is important and that is how we start out with Him, however if we never reflect His image, others will not care that we have a relationship with Him. So I think the quote is accurate.
I am an adoptee and also an adoptive parent and I cannot understand how anyone who has been adopted could be anything but pro-life. If there are pro-choice adoptees out there, I am very interested in hearing why. I am not meaning to offend, I truly am interested.33 AnswersAdoption1 decade ago
What do you think of this comment that Pres. Obama made at the national prayer breakfast this morning?
Obama, in prepared remarks, said, "There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being."
If he truly believed that he wouldn't have signed the bill to federally fund abortions, and he would not be working on the freedom of choice act- because the most innocent LIVES of all, are in the womb.30 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
