In June 2010 we published Created To Connect: A Christian’s Guide to The Connected Child.  Our hope was this study guide, which follows The Connected Child chapter-by-chapter, would be an encouragement and provide additional insight for Christian adoptive and foster families.

In less than one year we have distributed 6,000 printed copies of the study guide, and more than that same number of people have downloaded the study guide online. We have heard from dozens of churches that are regularly using the study guide in support groups and discussion groups. Likewise, many agencies and countless families from across the country have turned to the study guide to find hope and help.

We have just recently printed 11,000 more copies of the study guide and it is our prayer that God will continue to use this resource to encourage and inform adoptive and foster families. Over the coming days, we will highlight some of the stories and insights from the study guide on the Empowered To Connect site.

If you have not had a chance to read the Created To Connect Study Guide and prayerfully consider the discussion questions contained in its pages, we encourage you to do so. Maybe you can get together with other couples in your church, or maybe you can form a group of adoptive and foster moms from your neighborhood — or maybe you and your spouse simply need to commit some time to work through the guide. However may be best for you, we encourage you to make this resource part of your journey.
