If you’re in your adoption wait, you may be wondering how to respond to friends and family who ask, “Have you heard anything yet?” or “Why don’t you have your baby yet?”
This is a good opportunity to ask them to join you in prayer, for all areas of your adoption-in-progress. A beautiful reminder to pray is these gorgeous adoption prayer bracelets, available in assorted styles:
If you have a prayer partner, you can buy one for her and one for you too! With your purchase of a prayer bracelet, proceeds go the Lifetime Foundation, an organization that assists women who are creating an adoption plan for their child. Each bracelet is unique, handmade and elegantly engraved with a charm that says “My Adoption Prayer” on one side, and the verse from 1 Thessalonians 5:17 on the other.
You can get free shipping on your purchase of a bracelet at AdoptionPrayerBracelet.com by using the coupon code PRAYER (excludes European-style charm bracelets). We’ll mail them out via Priority Shipping, which will arrive within one to three days to most addresses in the U.S.
“Asking for prayer isn’t about putting burdens on friends. It’s about letting them walk with us down a path we were never intended to walk alone.”
