Why are we adopting? I mean, really... aren't we busy enough with our 4 boys? Couldn't we find other ways to use this money we are paying to agencies? John Piper explains the theological basis of adoption... we adopt horizontally (adopting children) because of our vertical adoption (adoption by God). Not every believer is called to adopt, and this blog is certainly not intended to convey that. What we can do is to consider how we can be involved in the spiritual and horizontal adoption of others!
