Christian Adoption and “Orphan Care” Movement’s

David Smolin

Received the following via Desiree Smolin Facebook friends list.  Interesting it comes to me on the heels of my post on the St. Johns conference on religion and rescue. (Hope David speaks again at this conference. Saw him two years ago, had lunch with him, Claud and Margie. He is an incredible speaker and so knowledgeable!)

Please read and distribute. This article “is meant to provide a much needed critique of the Christian Adoption and “Orphan Care” Movement’s arguments and methods. Hopefully it will provide the content to start a much needed critical conversation both within the evangelical Christian church and with the “Orphan Care” movement
