A Christian view of adoption: Redemption

Prior to my adoption, I did not know that there was a Christian view of adoption, but at my little guy's baptism, which took place at Mass, the first reading was from Paul's Letter to the Romans, and included:

"For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, 'Abba, Father!'" (Romans 8:15)

This was not specially selected for us, but was just the reading for the day from the three year cycle of readings of the Catholic Church. Coincidence? Hmmm.

Anyway, here is a link to a blog post that uses redemption lanugage in looking at adoption from a Christian perspective. Reece's Rainbow: In His Word it Says... Redemption I think it is worth reading.
