Why Should Christians Adopt? The Old Testament contains more than 40 scriptures that show God's concern and compassion for orphans. God's people then and God's people now must care for this disenfranchised and neglected segment of society. Adoption is the most loving and permanent way to care for these little ones. Psalm 68:5-6a says that, "A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families." Although there are challenges in the adoption process and parenting in general, if God is calling your family to adopt a child, it will be a blessing.

Cherrydale offers a monthly support group for adoptive and foster care families. If you have adoptive or foster children at home or are in the process of adopting, this confidential support group would like to help you. All meetings are held at Cherrydale Baptist Church, 3910 Lorcom Lane, Arlington, Virginia at 11 am in Room 120A. Childcare is available.
