The Adoption Miracle
The Story Behind The Adoption Miracle
“Boris learns that he must patiently wait for God to answer his prayer for a new home.” – Harrison Woodard
Background – The Adoption Miracle, was the second story I completed in the Boris Kitty series. The story was based on actual events and came from my pondering what if animals had faith to pray for a home. I have always been bothered by caged animals. God made the creatures of this planet to live free. And wherever possible, I believe wild animals should be allowed to live in their native habitat, free from cages. Of course many dogs and cats have been domesticated to the point that living in the wild could be hazardous.
When I visited the shelter, I saw all the cats and dogs that were locked up in cages. I wanted so much to find every one of them a home. It made me wonder what happens at night. Were the animals that were picked last worried, scared, or were they confident that God would provide them a home?
Summary – The story starts with Boris in the shelter full of animals. Since he is a black cat, the other cats tell him that nobody will adopt him. A cat named Taffy introduces him to God, faith and prayer. He prays for a home. For a short time it seems that the other cats are right – nobody wants him. After a few days, Boris is alone. But his confidence in God remains strong. Finally, someone arrives that was looking for a cat just like Boris.
As he embraces his new mom, Boris remembers to thank God for finding him a home.
Did You Know– Taffy, his friend in the shelter, was named for a little dog that was part of my sister Sarah’s family.
The story was illustrated by Donna Rosin.
Biblical Theme – I go to God’s Word for inspiration for each story. Here is the verse I selected for The Adoption Miracle.
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. — Hebrews 11:1 <NLT>
You grow in faith by continually hearing God’s Word. And you can undermine faith by speaking fear, doubt and unbelief. By knowing God’s Word, you can anchor your faith on Truth – because God cannot lie (Numbers 23:19, 1 Samuel 15:29, Psalm 89:34, Titus 1:2, Hebrews 6:18). It is very easy to place your trust in someone who will never fail you.
Hope You Enjoy The Story!!
