The Fist Pump Seen ‘Round the World

Adopted Girl With Red Leaf
General Information

When Dae Brown tweeted a photo of her newly-adopted son, she had no idea it would go viral… but who could resist an adorable three-year-old throwing a celebratory fist in the air? Over 56,000 shares and nearly 142,000 likes prove people shared his excitement in seeing his 832 days in foster care come to an end.

Why do we love a good adoption story? Maybe it’s because adoption tugs at our human desire for belonging or to see families experience wholeness. Either way, building a family is powerful.

Did you know there’s another form of “adoption” that can bring meaning and depth to your family? It’s called “Child Named Charity” and it’s literally inviting a ministry to become one of your heirs. Many people have found adding Grace Bible College as another “child” in their Will has enriched their life with purpose, knowing their legacy will impact lives for generations to come.

James 1:27 states true, pure religion includes looking after orphans, so we know adoption (in any form) is close to the heart of God. As Max Lucado said, “If anybody understands God’s ardor for His children, it’s someone who has rescued an orphan from despair, for that is what God has done for us. God has adopted you. God sought you, found you, signed the papers and taken you home.” Your legacy — and end-of-life plans — can ensure others will experience love, belonging and wholeness.
