By God’s plan, a child can become a cherished member of the family through adoption, and the family tree adds a small branch. That child is “grafted” into the family. But this new branch need not be viewed as inferior. A grafted branch can have just as much strength and bear just as much fruit as any other branch in the family. In fact, a tree full of grafted branches can have just as much strength and bear just as much fruit as any other family tree . . . maybe more. This is all according to God’s plan, and that is why those involved in adoption need to know God’s heart, for He says,

“I know the plans I have for you . . .
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11

Adoption is designed by God to meet the very real needs of those whom He created. “God sets the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6). Adoption is often the highest expression of love because it reflects God’s relationship with all who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. True Christians are “adopted” into the family of God.

“He predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ,
in accordance with his pleasure and will.”

Ephesians 1:5
