A few months ago I wrote this post about the church’s response to hurting adoptive families (or really, hurting families period). I know from corresponding with so many adoptive families that our churches (and we ourselves) need to make changes. We all need to be a lot more transparent and so much less judgmental.
Any new thoughts about how to find/embrace the church and its family? If you’re at a supportive church, how did you find it and what do you do to educate them? If you’re lost and hiding from the one place you should find acceptance, what would you tell a church that would help you the most?
