We wanted to create a t-shirt to promote adoption, to identify our goal of bringing Igor home from the Ukraine, to raise funds needed for this adoption, and to allow friends and family to participate with us in the process. As we thought about a design for the shirt we were reminded of something John Piper said when speaking on the topic of adoption. John Piper was asked why he adopted his daughter and why people should be motivated to adopt. He referenced Ephesians 1:5-6 "He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." He made the statement, "ADOPTION IS GREATER THAN THE UNIVERSE." Adoption was part of God's plan before the Universe was created. It was before the Universe. It is above the universe. And it is the purpose of the Universe. God chose adoption as a way in which His grace could be put on display most beautifully. It was God's idea. It is through the redemptive work of Christ on the cross. And it is for His GLORY and HONOR. And because of this grace we now want to partner with God in this beautiful story of adoption to see lives transformed! The Russian writing on the map of Ukraine has the quote by John Piper, "Adoption is Greater Than the Universe."
