We promise to be kind
We pray that you do not feel like you need to envy our other kids, but feel just as part of our family as they are.
We will boast only in the One who gave you to us. Our heavenly father knew that you were born for our family!
We pray that the Lord will melt any pride that we feel as an adoptive family. We just want to obey God's call on our lives to adopt.
We promise not to dishonor you, but to learn about the culture you came from and allow you to find who you need to be in Christ.
We pray that we will not be self-seeking, but instead, keep your best interest at heart.
We promise not to get easily angered. But, knowing that we are human, we promise to seek forgiveness for the times we are wrong.
We will keep no record of wrongs, and I promise that if you have a children's yard chair in the backyard that I won't sit on it and break it:)
We do not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. You can rest assured in this one, little girl.
We promise to always protect you
always trust you, although we know times will come where it will be difficult
always hope and pray that you will find the personal relationship in Christ that he desires from you.
