Christian Adoption Movement

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world" (James 1:27, NIV).

Earlier this week, the Dallas Morning News ran an excellent story about a growing movement within conservative evangelical Christianity to adopt children. Several ministries like Focus on the Family and FamilyLife have joined together as allies in promoting adoption. In the story, "Fighting Abortion Issue, Christians Turn to Adoption," the newspaper went beyond reporting about the national movement; it told several individual stories about adoptive families and included an informative question-and-answer section.
