Next week, Dr. Russell Moore of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary will be speaking about adoption here at FRC. An adoptive father himself, Russell brings both great understanding and deep commitment to the need for bringing orphaned children into loving, stable homes. You can find out more about the event, and register for it here.

For a good look at what it's like to adopt internationally, read Jennie Allen's moving article, "Answer to Prayers: An Adoption Story." And unlike many good stories, this one is true.
