Fields of the Fatherless

25 06 2008

This book is a quick read that covers the heart behind why we should care for the orphan. It is chock full of Scripture about God’s heart for “the least of these.” The author, Tom Davis, is the president of an organization called Children’s Hope Chest that provides orphan care for children around the world. I recommend this book for anyone who has a desire to get involved in any facet of caring for the orphan. Click on the image for more reviews or to purchase this book.


The Adoption Decision

25 06 2008

I think this book is an excellent place to start if you are just beginning to consider adoption. Author, Laura Christianson, has adopted two sons and has provided a wealth of information regarding things you need to think about as you decide whether or not adoption is for you. It is simple, straight-forward, and filled with anecdotes of adoptive families. I found it helpful even though we had already begun the adoption process as it touches on several subjects relevant to issues we may face such as: failed adoptions, dealing with comments from others, open adoption, attachment difficulties, transracial issues, and more. I highly recommend this book. Click on the image to read more reviews or to purchase this book.
