Item description for Carried Safely Home: The Spiritual Legacy of an Adoptive Family by Kristin Swick Wong...

...a stunningly beautiful and moving book. Filled with expectation, hope and fulfillment, it has something to teach each of us, whether adoptive parents or not, about the love and provision of our faithful God. Through the stories of her two Vietnamese-born sons, author Kristin Swick Wong explores the spiritual riches of adoption. Carried Safely Home includes reflections about worship and waiting, travel and homecoming, birthparents and orphans, sorrow and joy, loss and redemption, fear and faith. It reveals how adoption can draw us near to God, offering companionship, encouragement and inspiration for readers on any journey of parenting, adoption or child advocacy. Nearly six in ten Americans have a significant personal connection with adoption, yet little has been written about the subject from a biblical perspective. Adoption usually includes a tumultuous mix of sorrow and joy, loss and redemption, fear and fulfillment. Though often heart-wrenching, it offers a rich opportunity to draw nearer to God. Adoption can also be a precious part of a pilgrimage toward God. This book is a companion to come alongside those involved with adoption and the blessings found throughout the twists and turns of the journey. Kristin Swick Wong is the mother of two daughters by birth and two sons by adoption. A graduate of the University of Michigan she and her family live in Ann Arbor, MI where she is homeschooling their children.

Reviews - What do customers think about Carried Safely Home: The Spiritual Legacy of an Adoptive Family?

Very moving and inspirational  Aug 15, 2007
I had a hard time putting this book down. It is so honest, and truly reflects the emotional and spiritual 'roller coaster' of adoption. As an adoptive mother I could relate to so many of the experiences and feelings that Kristin shares. The author's spiritual relfections are thought provoking and inspiring. This is a much needed resource for Christian adoptive families and will be especially helpful to those just beginning their adoption journey.

Draw Close to God in Your Adoptive Journey  Nov 4, 2006
I can not recommend this book highly enough for Christian adoptive parents. The author describes her journey, and that of her family, through the adoption of two Vietnamese boys. She details God's development of her character through the waiting and uncertainties of the process, and shares about what she learned about such topics as prayer, fear, waiting, God's goodness, pain, and worship. Mrs. Wong's story has been a chief means of encouragment and exhortation for my husband and I as we have felt the refining fire in our own hearts during our own adoptive journey.
Madonna could have used this book  Oct 25, 2006
We hear about so-called designer adoptions involving Hollywood stars, and while the press they receive helps bring attention to the need for adoption, the truth is that there are many people who would like to know more about the actual experiences of real people. Kristin and Phil Wong were parents of two natural children when they made the decision to adopt two Korean boys. This is their story told from a Christian perspective, because it is important for anyone interested in adoption to know that it is an act of Christian love and not just a spur of the moment, politically correct thing to do in order to get good PR. I doubt if anyone reading this book will not be deeply touched by the experiences of the Wongs.
A Christian perspective on adoption.  Sep 11, 2005
Here is a scriptural roadmap to aid those who wish to adopt. The story is told from the experience of a Christian family who recently went through the process of adopting two boys from Asia. Through many trials and frustrations Kristin Wong shares her struggles in keeping faith and the Biblical lessons she is taught on the way. She speaks with an honesty and beauty that allows the reader to witness precious moments of joy and love. A heart warming and faith building book.
good resource for adopting families or those who've been adopted  Aug 31, 2005
This book has applications for any Christian in understanding his/her own adoption as God's child. I plan to recommend this book to my friends, especially those that are adopting children into their family or who have been adopted into a family themselves. My favorite aspect of the book is the author's honesty about her own faith struggles in waiting on the Lord throughout the adoption process.
