"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 http://www.familylife.com 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.
