Whether you got pregnant immediately or have tried for a long time, this verse reminds us that God’s timing is perfect.  We don’t always see it, but God works in special ways with His perfect timing.  

This would be a great verse to use if you are announcing your sweet rainbow baby or if you were at risk of miscarriage but God has protected your sweet baby.  I just love how comforting this verse can be in times of hopeful expectancy.

Mark 9:37

Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but Him who sent me.”

  1. I remember watching the final season of Friends where Chandler and Monica were adopting and Chris Pratts, now ex, wife brought up asking them if there are any Bible verses about adoption and they made one up when they could’ve made some play to us Christians. Anyways, my point is, the world keeps trying to ignore the beauty that the scriptures bring up about babies, birthed by you or adopted. Thanks for putting a good list out there to bring God back into things
