Editorial Reviews

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, 107,000 children in the foster care system are currently waiting to be adopted. According to a 2007 report by the Williams Institute UCLA School of Law and The Urban Institute of Washington D.C., an estimated 65,500 adopted children are living with a gay or lesbian parent, and an estimated 14,000 foster children are living with gay or lesbian 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 says, "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.

This movie touched and moved my families heart! We've been trying to adopt for a few years and the testimonies from the families really spurred us on. I laughed, I cried. The body of Christ is beautiful!

This movie is a wonderful representation of why Christian families should adopt and by biblical standards. It contains some beautiful stories from various families on the process they went through and giving such wonderful advise and blessed encouragement.

A wonderful film for the whole family and a must watch to be sure!

This DVD provides an excellent overview of biblical teaching regarding adoption and how Christians should and can be engaged in this ministry. The real-life stories and experiences add a compelling human dimension. We plan on using this as a resource to help others understand God's command to care for the orphan.

By Anna Discher on April 18, 2012
This movie was so touching. We were very moved during the entire film. If the church in America could grasp the concepts put forth here, the Kingdom of God would be much advanced. Caring for widows and orphans as a mark of the true church of Jesus Christ was conveyed so clearly and beautifully. Praise the Lord for this message!
