Home for Good
Making a Difference for Vulnerable Children
By Krish Kandiah
There are thousands of children in care in the UK, in need of adoptive or foster parents, and this strong call to action from Krish Kandiah, tying in to a nationwide campaign, urges us all to find ways to help them find a real home.
Tying in to a nationwide joint campaign by the Evangelical Alliance and Care for the Family, Krish Kandiah wants us all to take seriously Jesus' call to 'suffer the little children' by engaging with the needs of the many thousands of children up and down the country who are in care and whom the church could and should be helping.
Krish and his wife Miriam have adopted and fostered children themselves and their experience - and that of the many others in this book - is very different from the popular myth which suggests social services seek to prevent Christians from getting involved. Krish argues that whatever the state's stance may be, it is a part of our calling as God's church to get involved where it's hardest, and to help these children out of the tough realities they find themselves in.
Filled with stories from people who have adopted or were adopted themselves, alongside practical advice on how it all works and the challenges that will come, this book makes a compelling case that the church can and must make a difference in these children's lives, and asks us all to consider our response.

Krish and Miriam Kandiah write from a deep well of experience as they explore the landscape of adoption and fostering in today's culture. In this book they provide practical models to help anyone who has a vision to offer homes to some of the most vulnerable in our society. — Nicky Gumbel
The book Home for Good: Making a Difference for Vulnerable Children provides a detailed theology of adoption, as well as practical examples of ways in which people can help, even if they do not foster or adopt themselves. — Church Times
Krish argues with passion that our 'vertical' experience of being adopted by God must translate into a 'horizontal' commitment by Christian families and churches to foster and adopt...What makes this book so compelling is the skill and eloquence with which Kandiah provides theological ballast for the idea...
This book needs to be read, and Kandiah's initiative requires our support.
