Overview

Born to a fourteen-year-old girl and an eighteen-year-old high school dropout, the odds of Mark Molzen being in prison, dying young or becoming a drug addict were far more likely than any other outcome. So how did he beat the odds - becoming a successful, highly regarded public relations professional for an $18 billion, Fortune 150 Company? It's all because of the plan God had for him-a plan that started when his understanding of adoption radically changed.

Mark Molzen's debut explores the stigma surrounding adoption, delves into what the Bible says about this issue, and examines the inherent power of choosing to accept that adoption is part of God's plan for our lives. Adopted into the "United Nations of Adoption," a family consisting of two biological children as well as four adopted children of Native American, Asian American, and African American descent, Molzen's life circumstances changed dramatically the day he was adopted. But his adoption isn't really the story. This life-altering book will teach adopted children, young and old, and their parents that to change how they feel about adoption, they must first understand how God feels about adoption and then choose to accept what that means for their life. And the good news is, the power to do this is already theirs - the power to choose to believe is available to all.

Exploring identity, biblical adoption and salvation as well as other adoption issues, Molzen's debut should be viewed as just the beginning, a resounding blast of personal honesty and biblical perspective designed to foment a fundamental wave of change in how adoption is viewed. Written to encourage adopted children and their adoptive parents, Chosen With Purpose: A Story of Adoption and Identity is as enlightening as it is uplifting, demonstrating how the word of God can change everything.
