Have you ever considered adopting an older child? Has your desire to share God’s love with children who desperately need it ever crossed your mind? Have you hesitated to adopt because of the problems that could arise? Do you know what Orphan Sunday is?

Jodi Jackson Tucker, author of 10 Things You Need to Know About Older Child Adoption, joins us on The River today. She will share personal stories as she discusses problems such as the Survivor Guilt experienced by children who are adopted at an older age. She’ll teach us the importance of the Keep It Small Rule. She will explain how “punishment in one culture may not even seem like punishment in another” and yet something common in America might seem bizarre or even hurtful to a child from another culture.

Join Jeannie and Maxine as we chat with this remarkable woman who advocates for the rescue and adoption of orphans.
