MORE THAN JUST ADOPTION
Awaking to Gospel-Centered Adoption and Orphan Care
With openness and integrity, Rick Morton and Tony Merida speak from firsthand experience. Orphanology details practical ways to get involved such as assisting adoptive parents in down-to-earth fashion, raising awareness of the crisis in orphan and foster care, developing a fund to assist potential adoptions, hosting orphans for a summer, underwriting an orphanage, and starting an orphan care ministry in the local church.
Tony Merida and Rick Morton are living examples of James 1:27–they have a combined eight adopted children between their families.
Tony Merida has quickly become a leading voice in the growing movement for adoption and orphan care. His passion for the fatherless is evident through his writing, teaching, and speaking.
Rick and his wife, Denise, have three children, who all came home through international adoption. God’s heart for the fatherless characterizes much of their ministry lives. Rick leads conferences and speaks globally on orphan ministry.
