Adopting the Father’s Heart is a vulnerable and challenging look into God’s call to orphan care through one couple’s experience with adoption. Kenneth and Danielle were on a path to return overseas as missionaries when God redirected them—at least, temporarily. Both felt God leading them to foster children with the possibility of adopting. How did they start the process? What were the challenges and the rewards? Their story informs, convicts, and inspires others to care for the orphans in our communities. “As a pastor who is trying to lead my church into ministry in the foster/adopt world, I am thrilled to have Kenny Camp’s book “Adopting the Father’s Heart” as a resource…I’ll make it required reading for both staff and volunteers who work in our foster/adopt ministry.” Dr. Will Davis Jr., Senior Pastor, Austin Christian Fellowship
“Filled with uncertainty and triumph, this book will encourage you to consider those overlooked in our society. With its practical advice and heart-stirring truths, I strongly recommend this book…” Lance Bane, Senior Associate Pastor, Church of the Hills
“Adopting the Father’s Heart is an essential read not only for families wanting to foster children, but for anyone who knows a family fostering children…this book will compel you to re-evaluate your priorities so that you will be more focused on others and how you can change lives each and every day.” Kelly Gottschalk, Preschool Pastor, The Church at Canyon Creek

Informative, highly practical, and authentic in sharing both the ups and downs through the process of fostering and adopting a son, Adopting the Father's Heart is an invaluable resource and source of encouragement. While it is obvious that those who are navigating the fostering/adopting system (or considering it) will benefit from this book, the impact is much broader. Anyone who knows a fostering family will have a new understanding of ways to come alongside that family to provide support and encouragement in tangible ways. Adopting the Father's Heart is as much a spiritual journey as a familial one. Camp's open and, at times, gut-wrenchingly honest testimony of his journey will challenge readers to evaluate their own hearts and attitudes toward the least of these. Highly recommended! I had the privilege of attending Kenneth A. Camp's book launch party and purchased a copy of this book. I am pleased to provide an honest review.
