"I rejoice in the growing vision for the sacred calling of adoption. The pain and pleasures of parenting are multiplied with every child we embrace — whatever age and by whatever means. The rewards are partly in this life, but mainly in the next. Jesus does not call us to maximize our securities and comforts here. He said, "Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." The short-term risks of adoption are huge. The long-term risks of love are zero. God will make all grace abound for every day's demand. Nothing is impossible with Him. There will be no regrets for parents who love in the power of Christ. May God multiply churches that live this truth."
