Carolina Hope is pleased to announce the creation of its new blog: From Hope to Reality. This blog is the brainchild of Dan Cruver, Carolina Hope's new Ministry Outreach Coordinator. Two weeks ago, starting a blog was the last thing on anyone's mind. But with Dan's arrival and my transition (I'm now focusing almost exclusively on the website and print materials), the idea seemed plausible, even attractive.
The blog will serve two main purposes. First, it provides a way to deliver updates about our adoption programs. For example, the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala just introduced a new DNA requirement. My next blog post will be about that.
Second, the blog makes it possible for Dan Cruver to share his vision for understanding adoption in the larger context of redemption. We'll have a post from him very soon about that. Many of his subsequent posts will explore what adoption means for the Christian faith: God's adoption of his people, and Christians' adoption of orphans.
We look forward to interacting with you, our readers, in the days and months to come.
