When you meet the Browns the subject of adoption comes up. But it was this way even before Motte and Beth went to Ethiopia to grow their family.
Yesterday I spent some time capturing their precious family on film to help tell their story for the January issue of Citizen magazine (sneak peek above). I love that the Sanctity of Life issue will have at its centerpiece the subject of adoption.
In addition to the photos and retelling the why, how, hardships and joy of Motte and Beth's journey, I'm reviewing Russell Moore's book Adopted for Life. It's different, reminding all believers that we are adopted into God's family as well as called by Him to be involved in the adoption of orphans. But it's not the kind of book you should be scared to read. It's not a guilt trip. Yes, you may finish it with a strong desire to adopt. But it's not a given. What you will finish with is a desire to be involved in adoption somehow, consistent with God's plan for you life.
Have you considered adoption? We'd love to hear your story.
