Is this just another book on adoption?

BookStackNot really. This book is about awareness and preparation – for those in leadership and for those called to adoption, foster care, visiting orphans or helping vulnerable children.

Journey is for leaders who must help others become aware of God’s heart for these children.

Journey is for ordinary people who must prepare well before they begin their venture.

Journey is for the Church.

The journey is different for everyone but regardless of the route, we encounter similar experiences along the way. We may have mountain top moments one day with valleys that are deep and lonely the next. There may be spectacular vistas as well as dark nights of doubt, discouragement and disappointment.

Ever gotten lost on a road trip?  It’s confusing and frustrating when you take a couple wrong turns.  Everything looks strange and unfamiliar.

Those feelings of insecurity and confusion are exactly what many feel when they encounter a world they weren’t expecting on the journey to the fatherless.  The map they have, and the things they were trained for … don’t match up with reality. That is why being prepared for the journey is so important.

The book’s theme verse is from our guide who will travel with us

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21)
