Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the 2010 Adoption Seminar. We look forward to doing it again soon!

As an adoptive parent, I can vouch that there is a boatload of misinformation and mythology surrounding adoption and foster parenting floating around out there, and most of it is negative. If you’re tired of the negativity or just want your questions answered, we’d like to help you. But beware: It will be from a decidedly, radically, lovingly Christian worldview.
Negative attitudes toward foster and adoptive parenting work against the best interest of kids who need families. There are kids who will end up “in the system” through their formative years just because one Christian family never considered taking them in. Or worse yet, they considered it and decided it wasn’t worth the bureaucratic red tape. Is that you?
Align yourself on the side of the kids. Become an advocate, not necessarily for “the system,” but for the kids in the system. Foster a heart for ministry in yourself and your kids so they will consider fostering and adopting kids when they are older. Speak positively to your church friends and leadership about the need for Christians to step up to the plate and care for the fatherless, not through a faceless organization, but where it counts the most, in their own homes.
That is love in action. That is what adoption and foster parenting should really be about.
Do I hear an “Amen?”
