Today is the start of Adoption Awareness Month. I think it is sobering and useful to start off this month with the following short quote from Show Hope.
“Right now, there are more than 140 million orphans in the world. That’s 140 million names, 140 million little faces, and 140 million reasons to join the movement to care for orphans.”
It is impossible to turn a blind eye to this crisis in the world! There are so many ways to get involved in adoption. Financial sponsorships, visiting local orphanages and spending time with these children, praying – both for orphans and for families waiting to adopt, attending adoption seminars, reading books and obviously to pray about and perhaps pursue adoption as an option for your familiy!
