Guest Post for Created for Care: You’re Not Alone

by Camille on September 12, 2013

I was thrilled to write a post this week for the Created for Care blog sharing my experiences at the conference last year. I can’t wait for February 2014 for my second C4C. I’m including an excerpt here. Please go check out the entire post. 

 

…Honestly, I had begun to doubt our decision. I was weary, lonely, and pretty much terrified. But of course, it’s the moments that we are weakest that He is strong. When we cry out in confusion, He answers.

The month before C4C, I attended  my first meeting of a local adoption support group, the 1.17 Moms, based on Isaiah 1.17: “learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.”  Around a table at Starbucks, I heard story after story of women choosing to do hard things and answering God’s call in building their families. Dedicated women who know what it is to love a child from across an ocean. Fierce women who enter the fray of foster parenting. Brave women who face illness, learning disabilities, attachment disorders, grief, trauma, and more with their hearts open. And God said, “You are not alone. I am here. I am in these hearts.”
