Orphanology

Orphanology

Orphanology unveils the grassroots movement that's engaged in a comprehensive response to serve hundreds of millions of orphans and functionally parentless children.
You'll see a breadth of ways to care with biblical perspective and reasons why we must. Heartwarming, personal stories and vivid illustrations from a growing network of families, churches, and organizations that cross culture show how to respond to God s mandate. The book empowers:
churches: to plan preaching, teaching, ministering, missions, funding adoption, supporting orphans;
individuals and families: to overcome challenges and uncertainties;
every believer: to gain insights to help orphans in numerous ways. 
Discover how to 
adopt;
assist orphans in transition;
engage in foster care;
partner with faith-based fostering agencies;
become orphan hosts.
Along with their families' adoption stories, Merida and Morton give steps for action and features on churches doing orphan ministry, faith-based children's homes, orphan-hosting groups, and other resources.
