Save International Adoption!
*URGENT* International Adoption has declined by 81% due in much part to red tape put in place by our U.S. Government. This affects thousands of orphaned children around the world.
But you can do something about it today! There is a White House Petition going on to investigate the cause of this decline. The deadline to sign this petition is Monday, April 16th so don't delay! Make an impact on the lives of fatherless children around the world!

You can make a difference today!
Well as an adoptee myself and the older sister to two other girls from China, my family and I have considered the matter quite a bit. In fact, my parents and I were recently asked to share with a small Bible study group on this topic. We shared nine points of similarity which I’ve been posting and sharing one at a time over on my Google+ page. However, for my faithful blog readers who don’t do Google+, I thought I’d reshare the first three points here with you.*
My Miracle Story
Over this Adoption/Orphan Care series, we’ve taken a close look at God’s heart for the orphan, our responsibility to care for them, and ways in which one can get involved. So to close out this wonderful series on adoption and orphan care, I would like to share my testimony of God’s faithfulness and bear witness to the power adoption has to transform the life of an orphaned child.
My story began before I was even born, when about thirty-five years ago in the ancient land of China, one man decided to implement nation-wide population control. This decision was brought into effect through the One Child policy, and though this law has recently been repealed, it has forever impacted a generation.
Adopted As Sons and Daughters
“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!’ So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”
~ Galatians 4:4-7
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!”
Father to the Fatherless
November is orphan awareness month, and the first Sunday of the month is designated as Orphan Sunday. So we’re going to focus on discovering God’s heart for the fatherless and needy.
