Making a difference for vulnerable children
Tying in to a nationwide joint campaign by the Evangelical Alliance and Care for the Family, Krish Kandiah wants us all to take seriously Jesus's call to 'suffer the little children'.
There are many thousands of children in the UK who are in care and whom the church could and should be helping. Krish and his wife Miriam have adopted and fostered themselves and their experience - and that of the many others in this book - is very different from the popular myth that social services prevent Christians from getting involved. Krish argues, whatever the state's stance it is purely and simply a part of our calling as God's church to get involved just where it's hardest, and to help these children out of the tough realities they find themselves in.
As well as stories from people who have adopted, or were adopted themselves, Krish also gives practical advice on how it works and the challenges that will come. He makes a compelling case that the church can and must make a difference in these children's lives, and asks us all to consider our response.
'Krish and Miriam Kandiah write from a deep well of experience as they explore the landscape of adoption and fostering in today's culture. In this book they provide practical models to help anyone who has a vision to offer homes to some of the most vulnerable in our society.'
