Feel God's calling to adopt but husband 100% against it; heart breaking


Liz - posted on 04/08/2013




I want to adopt a second child (I could only have one) and my husband doesn't.

Initially I was upset, but now I feel that it is more important that he is my husband and that we are together as parents for our existing child than that I ruin the marriage with a division that cannot be resolved without loving compromise.

If your husband refuses, you really only have two options: possibly wreck your comfortable life that is blessed enough for you to want to extend your family, break your marriage and upset your children...or...get used to the idea that your family is complete and spend your time, energy and resources on being the best possible parents you can be to the children you already have.

When you consider it in those terms, it's really very easy to move on.
