Did You Know?

(This is from a magazine I have received for over 4 years now called "Stepping Stones" put out by Bethany Christian Services)

That more than seven million people in the US suffer from infertility? "Infertility is a disease that affects the reproductive system, prohibiting many loving families from bearing children. Despite the staggering number of people who are plagued by this devastating disease, infertility is not recognized by most insurance companies" (from Send a Stork Campaign)

That nationwide the most common average price of an adoption (domestic or international) is $20,000-$25,000? (From Adoptive Families Magazine)

That only the church can solve the world's crisis of 143 million there are more churches than McDonald's, Starbucks, and Walmarts combined (Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life?)

There are many things I don't understand in life, infertility being one of them, and it being so difficult to adopt...people often say why don't you just is not that easy believe me!....but, I know that I trust the Lord and that I can be confident that "in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28.

Check out Bethany Christian Services if you get a chance they are an amazing organization.
