Today, over 130 million children have lost one or both parents, and every 18 seconds, another child in the world becomes an orphan. In America, 114,000 children in the foster care system are currently waiting to be adopted, and an estimated 65,500 of those children have been adopted by homosexual parents. These staggering statistics should cause Christians to ask some probing questions. What would Christ’s church look like if we acted upon James 1:27 which states that “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world”. Why is it that the church at large doesn’t talk much about adoption? How can the church come alongside families who have chosen to adopt? Do adoption and missions have a common thread? This film will attempt to answer those questions. In it you will meet some extraordinary families who will take you on their adoption journeys. You will see how God has worked through adoption to challenge and deepen their faith and dependence on God alone, strengthen their family bonds, defy cultural norms, and give them a firsthand account of God’s incredible love toward us in adopting us into His family and calling us His children. This is a battle against the forces of darkness. Adoption isn’t charity, it’s war.
