NYT on Evangelicals and Adoption

In case you missed it, Saturday’s New York Times carried a front-page article on the adoption movement within evangelical churches. You can read it here.

The writer, Erik Eckholm, helpfully identifies potential pitfalls for prospective adoptive parents, especially concerning international adoptions. He notes that Christian adoption agencies are doing an increasingly good job at identifying problems, protecting adoptive parents, and even helping orphans falsely-so-called be returned to their families. But the dangers still exist, as witnessed by friends of mine who were promised children that never came.

If you’re interested in adoption, this piece is worth your while.
