A Forever Family for Kids
Adoption can be one of the most exciting, blessing-filled, and transformational things to happen to a family (not to mention the adopted child!). Not only can adoption be a wonderful way to build your family, it is also the means by which an orphan is transformed into a forever son or daughter.
At the same time, you should not enter into adoption without first fully understanding what you are getting into and being certain that adoption is right for your family. We believe strongly that adopting a child is a forever commitment, and so if you choose to adopt, we want you to be as prepared as you possibly can be. We want you to be a strong family that can bring hope and healing to a child with a likely traumatic past.
If you are feeling called to adopt, the best way to start is by talking to several other adoptive families to help you understand your motivations for adoption and what kinds of child might best fit into your family. If you don’t know someone who has adopted, you can find a mentor family here. You can also find resources below to spark conversations with friends and/or your spouse.
You can also download our resources below to help guide your prayers, self-reflection, and understanding of adoption.
