A forever family—the dream of every kid in foster care. I didn’t realize until recently how many of my stories mention foster care or adoption. In some books it is a featured part of the book, and in others it is on the periphery of the story. I drew inspiration from families who have been foster parents and those who have adopted children. In our church small group, there are four families who have adopted children out of the foster care system. It is wonderful to see children who find a stable home in their adopted families. As Christians we know that God has adopted us into His family. We are children of God. What a wonderful thought! We read about it in Ephesians 5:1.
One of my early books, FOUR LITTLE BLESSINGS, tells the story of Cassie Rankin who takes in her two nieces and two nephews in order to keep them out of the foster care system. It is a difficult task for a twenty-one-year old to navigate the waters of caring for these young children.
In my book, A MATCH TO CALL OURS, the hero, Parker Watson, is raising his adopted twin daughters, and he hires the heroine as a nanny who will home school his daughters.
Now I’d like to share books by some of the Inspy Romance authors that also are stories about adoption or foster care. You will find buy links below each book. I hope you’ll check them out for a good read.
I hope you will find the time to read each of these books that touches on adoption or foster care. Remember as Christians we are all part of a big family through God’s adoption.
