This gut-wrenching, heart-affirming book tells the tale of the families of Bennett Chapel who adopted 72 of the toughest kids in the foster care system and changed their lives forever. One church, 72 children. This is their story-a story of the power of redemption and love that will move and inspire you. Eight pages of photos from the families of Possum Trot.
On one memorable day, while Bishop W. C. Martin and his wife, Donna, were in prayer together, God gave them a one-word message: Adopt! They were called to carry out literally James 1:27: Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans . . . in their affliction.
Over the next five years, the Martins would adopt four kids, including two with special needs. And though they didn't make adoption a cause at that time, the members of their church of 200 soon caught the same vision. The church has now adopted 72 children and counting. Includes an 8-page black-and-white photo insert.
