It Takes a Village to Adopt a Child

According to Moore, the church “can encourage and equip the adoption of infants and children…can preach the gospel and care for the vulnerable..can provide the funds and the encouragement and the prayer support for untold numbers of Great Commission families.  If adoption is to be a priority, it will take mobilizing congregations to do so.  After all, it takes more than a village to adopt a child, at least for those of us in Christ.  It takes a church” (p. 188).

 

p.s. A special thanks to Matt and Janey Jennings for organizing the surprise baby shower!  Thanks also to everyone who came and showered us with your love and gifts!
