Thinking About Adoption? Count the Cost

Thinking About Adoption? Count the Cost.

My wife and I began a nine-week course entitled Empowered to Connect. The core of the study is Dr. Karyn Purvis’ material.

We realize that even though our adopted son looks just like any other child, he comes from a hard place. Sure he was only eight-months-old when he was placed with us. But, he had already experienced a lot of trauma in his short life.

If you are considering adoption, whether it is through private domestic, foster care, or international, I encourage you to watch the brief video above.

During these nine weeks I will post a few blogs with things I am learning. So, stay tuned!

P.S. If you want to pre-order a copy of my book, Adopting the Father’s Heart, visit the bookstore here on the site. An e-book version will soon be released as well.

  1. It doesn’t matter whether your foster experience or adoption has been smooth or rocky. At some point you will have to help your child deal with losses (real and/or perceived). You will have to overcome your feelings (once again) to assist your child. There may very well be emotional hurt for you, but you will be helping your child grow and hopefully finally accept reality. by Ray Mosley
