This book is certainly not just a guide for people who are thinking about fostering and adoption. Home for Good: Making a difference for vulnerable children is a plea to us all to take seriously Jesus’ call to ‘suffer the little children’ by engaging with the needs of the 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 children themselves and their experience – and that of the many others in this book – is very different from the popular myth which suggests social services seek to prevent Christians from getting involved. Krish argues that whatever the state’s stance may be, it is a part of our calling as God’s church to get involved where it’s hardest, and to help these children out of the tough realities they find themselves in.
Filled with stories from people who have adopted or were adopted themselves, alongside practical advice on how it all works and the challenges that will come, this book 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.
