Summary
  • "Brittany Salmon shares her family's story of transracial adoption and offers biblical guidance for others. No one is promising transracial adoption will be easy-least of all Brittany! Yet when an adoptive family honors the ethnicity of their children, they-and the watching world-will see God at work"--
  • "Embrace the beauty and challenges of transracial adoption.Being an adoptive parent is hard enough. But when your family is multiracial, things get even trickier. Parenting transracially doesn't come naturally, nor does it just happen with time. Love is essential-yet by itself, love isn't enough. Cross-cultural parenting also takes intentionality, listening, learning, growing, repenting, changing . . . then starting all over and doing it again. It's hard work! And yet, when an adoptive family honors the ethnic heritages of their children, the whole family-as well as the watching world-gets to see the beauty of a gloriously creative God.In It Takes More Than Love, Brittany Salmon shares her own family's story of transracial adoption and offers a biblically-based guide for others following the same path. Brittany recognizes that we live in divided times and there are extra challenges whenever race is part of the conversation. But with wise insight and hard-won experience, she provides guidance about topics such as:Maintaining a Gospel perspective throughout the journeyCelebrating your child's history and heritageConfronting racismResponding to comments about your familyAvoiding pitfalls in adoptionHelping your kids feel represented in your home and communityNo one is promising transracial adoption will be easy-least of all Brittany! Yet the extra effort is balanced by a beauty that images our eternal destiny. Until the day God makes all things new, the welcoming an inclusive transracial family can help fulfill Jesus's words, "on earth as it is in heaven.""--
