KnowOrphans by Rick Morton

"KnowOrphans: Mobilizing the Church for Global Orphanology" by Rick Morton is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to adopt. Not only does Rick Morton dive into why families should adopt, but also what the church's role should be with so many orphans around the world. Namely, how the church is responsible for equipping and supporting families before, during and after the adoption process.

The Bible calls Christians to care for the orphans of this world. So as believers, why aren't we doing more? Rick Morton is quick to point out that adoption is not for everyone, but you can still care for orphans without adopting.

What I like best about this book was that Rick Morton offers many ways that we as Christians can help take care of orphans. There are many options available besides choosing to immediately adopt although that would ultimately be the best option in the long run.

Personally, I really enjoy reading books on topics of orphans and adoption because my husband and I both have an immense desire to adopt in the near future. We feel that God is leading us in this direction, although we don't know how or where it's going to happen yet. Books like this one are excellent resources to families like my own, with adoption in their future.

I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
