The Joys and Challenges of Adoption - Part 2

Host:
Dr. James Dobson
Guests:
Billy Jack Barrett, Anne Barrett, J.R. Keller, Reyna Keller
Did you know that every year, over 20,000 youth between the ages of 18 and 21 leave the foster care system without finding a forever home? Sadly, there are more than 400,000 kids in foster care in the U.S., waiting to find a family. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Dobson sits down with Billy Jack and Anne Barrett, as well as J.R. and Reyna Keller, who tell how God has honored their sacrificial willingness to open their homes. Reyna shared that when she asked her sixteen-year-old son about what he’s learned while adjusting to a new younger sibling, he replied, "Love is a choice and an action." Indeed, it takes years of unconditional, Christ-like love for these wounded foster care kids to move forward from their painful pasts.
