Know Orphans (Review)
I just finished reading the book "Know Orphans" by Rick Morton. This book is about "mobilizing the church for global orphanology". I have got to say that Rick Morton has really done his research. Although he kind of had to, considering he has adopted transnationally three times.
If you are considering adoption, even with the smallest tug, I think you should read this book. Morton makes no mistake by stating that he believes not everyone should feel the call to adopt. But if you do, he covers every little aspect of the process. Morton discusses the scripture behind orphans and how we as the church should take care of them. He even covers legal issues as well as other issues that often come up such as learning a new language, psychological issues and medical issues.
I highly recommend this book. It is very informational and a great read.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity and New Hope Publishers for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
