Our adoption journey has opened my eyes to the needs of orphans. There are an estimated 143 million orphans worldwide. While I understand that not all families will be called to adopt, the Bible tells us that Christians are to minister to orphans.
“Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” – James 1:27
Laura Christianson’s blog, Exploring Adoption, provides an excellent resource on orphan care ministries and ways to help. I would encourage you to check it out!
