    What a fantastic book! Although Until Every Child is Home does contain some theological insights on adoption, it is primarily practical and profoundly personal. Todd Chipman knows first hand both sides of the adoption saga, having been adopted himself, and now being an adopted parent. The book is filled with personal stories of Christian families who participated in the life-changing experience of adoption.Chipman definitely doesn't shy away from...

    As a Christian adoptive mom myself, I have many opinions of why and how church as an organized religion should be answering the call to help kids in foster care. There are so many ways outside of being a foster and adoptive parent to support the children and their families. I hoped that this book would highlight the need, reference our doctrine calling us to help, and then layout a plan for the church to use as a guideline. However, this book foc...

    I received an arc of this book on netgalley in exchange for a honest review. It was kind of interesting, I'm interested in adoption and stuff, but it just dragged on too long.

    This book has challenged me more than any other book I’ve read in quite a while. It offers a very realistic and personal view of adoption (the author has adopted children himself), including both the joys and the difficulties. Chipman discusses the biblical mandate to adopt; ways that adoption and fostering (what he refers to as orphan care) can broaden a church’s ministry opportunities; interracial adoption; and the very real dangers that a ...
