There are some people in life who truly just inspire because their beliefs are not mere words, but action. Introducing the Lott family of Georgia. We met them, one day, at the zoo of all places. We and our three munchkins bumped into this adorable family with their 5 (now 6 with recent newborn), 4 of whom were transracially adopted. Courtney Lott runs Faithful Adoption Consultants and was wonderful enough to answer some adoption-related questions.
This is where it all began for the Bomberger family. A little girl, temporarily orphaned for 1 year while her mother and alcoholic father separated, made a promise that would change her life forever. Placed in Christ’s Home in Paradise (a children’s home), Andrea lived apart from her parents, although they individually visited her during her stay. But one little girl moved Andrea’s soul as she noticed this girl with physical disabilities never had anyone to visit her…no parent to comfort her…no one to love her. She made a promise to God, at the age of 5, to be a mommy to those without one. Andrea’s heart for adoption was shared by her husband, Henry, as they committed to loving those who were supposedly “unwanted”. This is how their family of 15 began.
Passionately committed to the belief that every child deserves to thrive in a nurturing, permanent family, NCFA’s mission is to meet the diverse needs of children, birthparents, adopted individuals, adoptive families, and all those touched by adoption through global advocacy, education, research, legislative action, and collaboration.
We’re Passionate About Adoption
Each one of the children in the above picture was rescued from an abortion clinic in the Los Angeles area and adopted. As adoptive parents, this tangible result of peacefully praying and offering a life-affirming alternative is so powerful. Adoption is real social justice. It unleashes hope. It unleashes love. It unleashes purpose. As founders of The Radiance Foundation, our passion for adoption has always been at the forefront of what we do. Our first video was of Ryan’s own adoption story–a short video called “UNWANTED”. Over the years, it’s reached hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, through social media, news interviews, and live presentations around the world.
