First of all, I'm sure some of you are wondering, "What does dating have to do with adoption?" However, dating in an ungodly way is how I ended up having a child outside of wedlock that I couldn't take care of the way God wanted me to. Secondly, this blog is about my journey through this situation. Unfortunately I am stubborn, and this is what it took for me to learn. I am hoping others can learn from my mistakes so they don't have to learn the hard way.
Now, I also want to make it clear that ungodly relationships and sex outside of marriage were the parts that were sin. Brody is not a sin or a mistake or anything bad. He is a great blessing, and adoption is a great thing. But the situations usually arise because of sin. Children are ALWAYS a blessing from God even when the "situation" isn't.
