Transracial Adoption

"From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live" (Acts 17:26, NIV).

On most mornings, I listen to the radio program FamilyLife Today as I am preparing the mail for delivery. For the past two days, Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine have been interviewing a couple of guests about the subject of adoption. During the program, one of the guests, author Sara Dorman said, "You know---culturally, sometimes people do not want to adopt internationally---or adopt a biracial child or a mixed-race child because they feel like, 'Well, I can't raise a black child because I'm white.' They cry the same color tears; they really do."

Amen! Amen! Amen!

I am thankful that FamilyLife is promoting Christian adoption across cultural and racial barriers.

You may look at for more information about the radio program. You will be able to listen online or read a transcript of each day's program:

"Who Will Care for the Children?" 3/14/2007
"So How Do I Adopt?" 3/15/2007

Any Christian who is interested in adopting a child should listen to the programs or read the transcripts. It's worth the time and effort.
