For the past several years it’s really been on my heart to adopt as well as have biological children. The story of adults who have been in the foster system as well as those who were adopted really resonated with me. I don’t think everyone has to or should adopt, but The Lord has definitely opened up my heart to the idea. Where do you start though? I always thought I would “find my future children” through volunteering, mentoring, or some type of community organization where I would get to know them and God would say “this is the one”. I’ve been meaning to highlight Karla Storey after seeing her fashion ministry on Instagram. Imagine my surprise when I go to her about section and she explains how her heart is for orphans, fostering, and adopting. Additionally, part of her proceeds goes towards helping them to have a better life. When you put your money where you mouth is, great things start to happen. Add Jesus to that, and all possibilities start to rise to the surface. I’m looking forward to seeing her flourish, and I thank God that there are so many out there making a difference.
Here’s a little about her in her own words:
“I love to write!! I also love being a wife, a mom of 3, and an overall creative! I have a huge heart for those who have no one to love them! I am a foster, and soon to be, adoptive mom of a beautiful little girl. To say I am passionate about orphans would be a little bit of an understatement. This is more than just something I do, it is who I am. Now, I wanted to give back to orphans, so proceeds from every sale will be donated to orphans and foster care organizations. You will personally be impacting the lives of others through a small purchase!”Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” -James 1:27″
