Catholic Carnival #170 is now up and running at “Book Reviews and More.” Thanks for hosting this week, Steven!
This is my favorite part of a story about Jim and Kerri Caviezel’s adoption plans, which ran on CNE …
Caviezel recalled that he was “completely terrified” at the possibility of adopting a child with a disability, but deep within his soul, he knew that God wanted him to do it.
He compared the fear he felt at the prospect of adopting a child to other “fearful” times in his life. Caviezel explained that in some of the “most important decisions” in his life, he has experienced a “huge fear” and found that he needed to trust God through his faith.
All parenting has a certain amount of … butterflies … associated with it. But adopting older children has a kind of long-term uncertainty that is not for the faint of heart. Only God can make you that strong.
