If we are blessed to adopt again, this child or children will bring the number of children in our home to six or more. Frankly, we do not have have a set number of children we feel we should have in our family. We are allowing the Lord to determine that. There is no guarantee that we will adopt successfully again, so the Lord could certainly close the door, telling us that our five earthly blessings (in addition to our four babies in heaven) are enough. We are prayerful either way.
Psalm 127:3-5 says that "children are a heritage from the Lord" -- "a reward", "like arrows". A man is blessed whose quiver is full of these "arrows". I don't know about you, but we are grateful for any gift the Lord deems a reward, including children.
If we were still able to have children biologically, we would have desired and been open to any number of blessings directly from my womb as much as we are open to children through adoption. We had decided that early on in our marriage. So our desire to adopt another child is not a far stretch for us. Honestly, it's a supernatural work of the Lord because I have never had dreams of a house full of children. I didn't like babysitting. I do not scramble to hold other people's babies. I am by no means a "kid magnet".
So, the short answer to the question, "Aren't five children enough?", is that we have no idea -- it's whatever the Lord decides. If we believe the Lord is prompting us to direct our support to other families' adoptions rather than our own, then that's what we'll do. If we feel the Lord is telling us to direct our energies elsewhere we will do so. If a birth mother does not choose us, then we cannot adopt through that means. The Lord may have us wait a few more years, and welcome another older child into our home. He may bless us with twins -- who knows? We are trying to be open, ready, and willing for whatever He has in store for us. ~In Christ, Talya
