Summary
Orphan care is more than just adoption. At the heart of orphan care is grace that reconciles us with God and that we extend to others. Orphanology unveils the grassroots movement that's engaged in a comprehensive response to serve hundreds of millions of orphans and "functionally parentless" children. You will see a breadth of ways to care with biblical perspective and reasons why we must. Heartwarming, personal stories and vivid illustrations from a growing network of families, churches, and organizations that cross culture show how to respond to God's mandate. Discover how to adopt, assist orphans in transition, engage in foster care, partner with faith-based fostering agencies, or become orphan hosts
