I Am Her Dad

"And that leads to the second thing that changed my fear. This thought hit me (and continues to do so): there’s a difference between being her father and being her dad. It’s not just semantics for me. She’s not mine, but she is. She’s not from me but she’s a part of me. She’s not my flesh, but I’d give my life for her. She’s my daughter. I may not be the guy who is responsible for her being in the world, but I am the guy who is responsible for her. And gladly. I may not be her father, but I am her dad."  Pastor Trent, Heritage Park Baptist Church

Resting In Him,

Monday, May 9, 2011Reluctant Husband Syndrome - Question 1

I am very excited to address something known in the blogosphere as RHS--

Reluctant Husband Syndrome.

You can count me in as one of “those husbands” who has not been on the same wavelength as his wife when it comes to adopting a child.

Guys, we should start a support group. “Hello. My name is Anthony, and I’m a reluctant husband.”

Well, thanks be to God, I’m a lot better now. And I won't step off the wagon!

So I want to speak to you husbands, you RH cowboys, who need a little help sorting through this stuff. In this post, I address the first in a series of typical questions you may have as an RH. Please feel free to write to me if you have any questions, you need prayer, or you want to scream. I am here for you.


I might consider adopting, but later. So what’s wrong with putting it off for a year or so?
