Trust in Your Adoption Circumstances

Posted by Mardie Caldwell on September 29, 2014

Today’s post is brought to you by Lifetime Adoption’s Founder (and adoptive mother) Mardie Caldwell:

Sometimes what seems like adverse circumstances are really planned growth opportunities. Trusting God daily and letting go of how you will get to the destination has to become habit. Every day, make sure that you affirm your trust in God no matter what seems to be a deterrent.


Sometimes we forget God is able to do far more than we ask for or can imagine. If someone would have told me 27 years ago that today we would be helping hundreds of babies and children find forever adoptive homes each year , I don't know if I could have handled the heavenly concept back then. I am glad I had the mustard seed of faith that He would enlarge my adoption plans to create adoptive families today. The path meant putting one foot in front of the other and getting back on track when I felt alone and lacking trust.


We are human, but the good thing is we can quickly get back on the road and once again know He has it all handled. It's exciting now to see small and large events we didn't expect. Here at Lifetime, there is never a dull moment: we have a long history of miracles and amazing adoption stories. This helps us all and will hopefully help you to "keep the faith".


So be strong, have faith, and learn to start each day with prayer and a positive expectation. Know that there is no limit to what God can accomplish in your life. Be mindful of having a thankful heart and look forward with faith.

In Him,



Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

Psalm 143:8
