Adopted By Design: “Can An Adopted Child Really Become Part of Our Family?”

Four years ago America World Adoption produced a video that addressed difficult questions many of us wrestle with, especially as it relates to orphans. The video was shown at our “Adopted By Design” seminars and offered some Biblical perspective to questions like, “Can an adopted child really become a part of our family?”

In part two of this video, this question is addressed by Emily Richards (daughter of Steven & Mary Beth Chapman) and Mark & Melanie Hall (Casting Crowns).

As you watch this video, we hope that you will prayerfully consider how you can be a part of the orphan crisis–whether through adoptionfinancially supporting orphan initiatives, taking a Storyteller Mission trip, or something else God is calling you to do. As the body of Christ, He is calling us to be His hands and feet and care for orphans (James 1:27).
