Wait No More by Kelly and John Rosati
Wait No More by Kelly & John Rosati
There are over 130 million orphans worldwide. The pro-life/pro-choice debate continues to consume politics and everyday conversations. Readers want to know what they can do to make a difference on these issues. Wait No More tells Kelly and John Rosati’s story of experiencing God more fully through the great blessings and challenges encountered during their journey to adopt four children from the U.S. foster care system. It is a story of God’s faithfulness to grow a beautiful family, through adoption, from the ashes of child abuse, neglect, and abandonment. The Rosatis strongly believe that God’s solution for orphaned children in the foster care system involves ordinary Christians desiring to live out an authentic pro-life commitment requiring action, not just words. Their story reveals how their beliefs challenged, enriched, and completely changed their family’s life.
Friends of ours from church recently adopted a child from overseas. This child was neglected and was, at the age of nine, smaller than their one year old. Since her adoption she has thrived.
I shared this story because it was the main reason I wanted to read this book. The Rosati's didn't set out to adopt. They saw a need and felt God's Hand and went for it. Because they obeyed God's leading four children now have a forever home and the ministry of Wait No More was born.
The need is so great and I know if you are like me you are probably thinking that what ever I do won't make a difference but that reminds me of the story of the man throwin clams back into the ocean and his friends saying that it wouldn't make a difference and he replied as a threw another one in the ocean "it does to that one"
Even if you don't feel lead to adopt this book is good for encouraging you look around and find ways that you can help.
I was given a copy of this book for review purposes.
