On this week’s episode of Adopting Hope, Sasha and Joyce speak with Fran Atchison. During their courtship, Fran and her husband, Reverend Sam Atchison, shared with the Lord and each other that they would like to adopt some day. Years later, when their biological daughters were ten and eight years old, they began to pursue foster care.

The Atchisons prepared their home for a baby. And then, the call came—twins.

Listen in to a profound conversation about the realities of foster care and adoption for Black children, institutional racism, and the heartbreaking beauty of God’s plans.
