A wonderful story of adoption

February 19, 2009

Heather and I would like to adopt as many orphans as we can. In South Africa (where I was born and raised, and where we hope to live in a few years), there are currently 2,800,000 orphans – 1 orphan for every 10 adults! The problem is staggering here too, but much less publicized. I found this man’s story of adoptions very encouraging (read it here). Perhaps God could use you in a similar way… Will you prayerfully consider serving and impacting lives through adoption and/or foster care?

James 1:27: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
