A New Book!!!
There are hundreds of thousands of children throughout the world who need forever families. Loving families provide the best conditions for the development and happiness of all children. Every child deserves a loving family. Gathering Israel's Children is a collection of personal experiences of individuals and families who have gathered children into their families through adopting them, mentoring them, and simply loving these children in need. The book also includes personal narratives of birth families and adoptees along with definitions, history, and explanations when needed to enhance understanding. Each story is written in first person as it was conveyed to the author for the express purpose of being included in this book. Adopting, mentoring, and loving children who need forever families is another way the Lord, Jesus Christ, is gathering His family before He comes again.
