In this special bonus episode of Upside Down, Kayla, Shannon and I (Lindsy) discuss adoption. In honor of National Adoption Month, we answer some pre-adoption FAQ's about foster care, domestic, special needs, and international adoption.
With over 100,000 children waiting to be adopted in the United States alone, the need is very real, and the scriptural command to care for vulnerable children is clear. But where to start? We hope this episode is the first few step in determining if adoption is right for your family, and if so, how to begin!
The topic of adoption ethics could be it's own episode; heck it could be it's own podcast. While we didn't explicitly address it in this episode, as a starting point, I want to send you over to read Jen Hatmaker's three part series on this issue on her blog: Part One, Part Two, Part Three.
Do you have pre-adoption questions we didn't answer in this episode? Find us on Instagram or Facebook and join the conversation! (Don't worry, a post-adoption episode is in the future!)
As always, thanks for joining us and being part of our #upsidedowntribe!
