?...a stunningly beautiful and moving book. Filled with expectation, hope and fulfillment, it has something to teach each of us, whether adoptive parents or not, about the love and provision of our faithful God? -- Christine Field
Through the stories of her two Vietnamese-born sons, author Kristin Swick Wong explores the spiritual riches of adoption. Carried Safely Home includes reflections about worship and waiting, travel and homecoming, birthparents and orphans, sorrow and joy, loss and redemption, fear and faith. It reveals how adoption can draw us near to God, offering companionship, encouragement and inspiration for readers on any journey of parenting, adoption or child advocacy.
Nearly six in ten Americans have a significant personal connection with adoption, yet little has been written about the subject from a biblical perspective. Adoption usually includes a tumultuous mix of sorrow and joy, loss and redemption, fear and fulfillment. Though often heart-wrenching, it offers a rich opportunity to draw nearer to God. Adoption can also be a precious part of a pilgrimage toward God. This book is a companion to come alongside those involved with adoption and the blessings found throughout the twists and turns of the journey.
Kristin Swick Wong is the mother of two daughters by birth and two sons by adoption. A graduate of the University of Michigan she and her family live in Ann Arbor, MI where she is homeschooling their children.
