Folded is a heartwarming declaration of the power of love and what it means to live a Christ centered life! If you are considering adoption, this book will encourage, inform, inspire and challenge you! You won’t be the same after reading the powerful stories shared by adoptive families. There is no sugar coating as Jennifer shares the realities of both the struggles and the joys of international adoption.
The slow erosion of selfish ambition, the growth of character through daily sacrifice that no one may ever see, the sweet kisses and little toes... what is life if you can't lay it down for someone else? Isn't this one of the best gifts we can be given in life? Though it may appear as a loss, it is all for gain: parenting develops our character, urges us on toward perfect love, and gives us an inking into the lavish love the Father has for us.
Adoption takes the ones who have been abandoned by death, poverty, or negligence and speaks purpose and worth into their lives. It is an act of restoration that creates hope and allows us to be part of God’s redeeming work.
"You matter. Your cries mean something to us.”
