Adoption and the Gospel

"It's one thing to talk about changing lives, even to give to an organization like Show Hope--it's another thing altogether to see with my own eyes the real flesh-and-blood little boys and girls standing with Steven [Curtis Chapman] on the stage-- people whose lives have literally been saved by a family's obedience to God.  It's an incarnation of the love of Christ; the fruit of the Kingdom made tangible, standing there with a little bow in her hair.  For a man like me so prone to disbelief, I feel like Thomas putting my hand in Jesus' wounds:  'This Gospel, then, is true?' "
