Responsible Foreign Adoption

Posted on by Jeremy Daggett

Here's an example of the type of humble, informed response I was hoping for from evangelical Christians. The response doesn't come from an adoption expert per se, but its author has adopted two children through foster care and one from overseas. In this guest post for Mere Orthodoxy, one adoptive mother both interacts with Kathryn Joyce's critique of foreign adoption and offers constructive suggestions for responsible adoption practices. The whole post is worth reading, but here are her suggestions in rapid fire:

  • Examine your motives
  • Think through worst case scenarios and have a plan
  • Respect birth order
  • Educate yourself
