""Is God calling me to become an adoptive parent?"" ""Which path to adoption would be best?"" Through simple introductions to the various kinds of adoption, thoughtful presentations of relevant biblical teaching and theological principles, and the sharing of the stories of ten adoptive families, Thinking About Adoption: A Practical and Theological Handbook for Christians Discerning the Call to Parent by Adoption is a must-read resource for Christians seeking answers to these questions. Read and reflect individually, as a couple, or in fellowship with other believers, and discover what God may (or may not) have for you!
""Thinking about Adoption offers precisely what people early in the adoption journey most need: a simple-yet-thoughtful exploration of the main options, key issues, and important questions to consider along the way.""
