Rescued – The Heart of Adoption and Caring for Orphans

VISTA, CA (ANS) -- Rescued – The Heart of Adoption and Caring for Orphans is a film with a powerful, soul-probing message—and it begins with a question: What would a church that obeys James 1:27 look like?
Yet, there are over 160 million children in the world without any parents. And America boasts the stunning figure of some144,000 boys and girls in foster care needing to be adopted.
Through some candid and inspiring interviews with adoptive families, Rescued – The Heart of Adoption and Caring for Orphans highlights the call to serve the fatherless, the hard-core realities of what it involves and the questions that call stirs up, questions such as:
* Is God asking me personally to adopt? How can I know?
The stirring stories of adoptive families address the fears, the vulnerability and the joys that surround the call to adopt.
As Jedd Medefind, president of the Christian Alliance For Orphans said, “Rescued provides moving story windows into God’s call to care for the orphan in distress”.
