INTRO: Last fall my wife and I attended the Billy Graham School of Evangelism and the MC for all the plenary sessions was Allen Dunbar. Allen used to be a pastor in Calgary and is not the president of a Bible School in the US. Allen was disowned by his parents and was tossed from place to place until he was adopted. One beautiful sunny day, at mid-morning break time, I went up to Allen and asked him if his testimony was available by tape. To my dismay, he did not know of an available tape of his personal testimony. I knew back then that we were coming to this message on adoption. You see, Allen knew what it was, not only to be unwanted (some of you may know that as well), no Allen knew what it was to be disowned by his blood parents. He knew what it was to be shuffled from one place to another, always to find out he was not wanted there either. I suppose he knew what it was to have potential adoption parents come, only to have someone else chosen rather than him. But Allen also knew what it was like to be chosen by a loving Christian couple.
