Adoption Resources

Adoption is important to both of our families, as caring for orphans is not only a job Christians are charged with, but also a glorious picture of the gospel and our adoption as sons and daughters of God. If you have questions about adoption, have a heart for adoption, or want to grow your love for orphans, one of the best things you can do is get your hands on a copy of Adopted for Life by Russell Moore right now.

Below are links to some of our favorite adoption resources, and we’ll add to this list as we come across things:
