Please take a moment to watch this video. Perhaps it will move you and motivate you to take some action in the life of an orphan.
So many times, people ask "What can I do?" They think adoption is too expensive. Or others think adoption is fine for other people but not for them. If everyone thought that and held the "pass the buck" mentality would anything ever get accomplished or changed in this world?
But there is so much we can do, from the little things to the big.
Pray-- for the children in orphanages, in foster care and for their workers.
We can give-- give of our time to be a foster parent or to mentor a child. Or give of our money to help support a child in an orphanage, to aid in grant money to get these children home faster, or to a family you know personally who is trying to adopt.
We can learn-- learn about the orphans of our world firsthand by taking a mission trip. Go across the world or just across our country and visit with the children who are so badly in need of a loving family. Or more simply, go to http://www.cryoftheorphan.org/ to learn more about the orphans of this world, their living conditions and what we can do to help.
Most importantly you can ADOPT! Open your heart and your home to a child who needs both so badly.
