James 1:27 "Pure and undeviled religion before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world."
Together For Adoption is a group of pastors, speakers, and churches that is encouraging the church to take up the cause of orphans worldwide. This website has so many resources for those interested in adoption. There are books, sermons, agencies, scholarships, articles and so much more. Take time to check them out. Even if you cannot adopt (right now :) ), then educate yourself so that you can encourage others to adopt. This is an issue that Christians MUST open their eyes to.
We have been really encouraged at so many that are now adopting worldwide. Almost once a week, we get an email from a friend or a friend of a friend who is wanting to adopt.
If you are thinking of adopting, PLEASE give us an email and ask any questions you've got. And if money seems to be the issue, there are scholarships and ways to make it work. Trust me. If we did it, anyone can do it. God is faithful.
I cannot watch this video and not weep for the orphan crisis. If it were up to me, we'd have 100 more added to our family.
