Lauren Daigle Makes an Adoption Pact with Her Friends

Adoption is close to the heart of God and in a recent interview with People Magazine we learned it’s also close to the heart of Grammy Award-winning Christian artist, Lauren Daigle.

Lauren Daigle is performing at the CBS 25th annual special, Home for the Holidays, where families share stories of how adoption changed their lives. Many other artists including CeCe Winans and Pentatonix are helping to raise awareness about adoption through this event!

Lauren shared this about receiving the call to be a part of the show,

I got the call a couple weeks ago and immediately was like ‘Yes!’ Opportunities where we encourage people to get involved in foster care and in these children’s stories, I think it’s the most important thing we can do.

In an interview about the upcoming show, Lauren Daigle shared with People Magazine a powerful story of celebration:

“The other day I had an opportunity where this little girl jumped on stage with me to dance,” she says. “I remember seeing the joy, like she was dancing from a different place. God prompted me to say, ‘Is there anything you want to share with the crowd?’ And she goes, ‘I was just adopted!’ I was overwhelmed. The crowd just erupted and she erupted in tears.” | Lauren Daigle

Lauren went on to share that she plans to adopt herself someday. She has challenged her friends to make a difference in the life of a child waiting for a family as well, in what she calls an “adoption pact.”

“I tell my friends all the time, ‘Why don’t we all just say we’ll adopt at least one kid and just see where that goes? It’s like an adoption pact. I tell them I might adopt more children than I have biologically.”

“When you feel those children’s hearts and you see the ache that they have experienced and then how adoption can provide a sense of stability and worth. It’s pretty priceless.”

It’s a beautiful thing when a family decides to make room in their homes for vulnerable children. I’m reminded of the story of Esther, and how not her mother or her father, but her cousin Mordecai gave her help and took care of her when she needed it most.

And then, the best story of adoption, is that Jesus adopted us all into His family. And no matter who you are, or what you’ve done, He is always there with arms wide open.

“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” | Ephesians 1:5 (NLT)

A Home for the Holidays airs Dec. 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
