Beschreibung des Verlags

Have you ever wondered what adoptees and their families need from family and faith? This book blends personal experience, expert insights, adoptee interviews, trauma research, and scriptural interpretation so The Church and the Christian community can re-envision adoption to better serve adoptees and their families.  

Quotations from adoptees and birth mothers enliven the book and build a deep empathy for those touched by adoption. Reimagining Adoption builds compassion for adoptees and first families. In that compassionate space lies the healing and belonging for which adoptees profoundly yearn.

Reimagining Adoption examines beliefs, practices, and scripture to attune to the needs of vulnerable children and their families and align with Christian values. It examines the historical adoption practices, reviews current practices, and proposes revisions. More importantly, it lifts up the words and lived experience of adult adoptees - the true experts on adoption - and braids them with the insights of adoptive families to craft a new adoption paradigm. 

Listeners will learn:
