Today is World Orphan Day. With 153 million (yes 153,000,000) orphans world wide, this mission is something that we should be focusing on not just today, but everyday.
Adoption started out as a means to grow our family, but over the past 10 months or so, I have developed a deep passion for orphan care. Once you have the heart for adoption, you are changed forever. I can guarantee that our Nicaraguan adoption will be our first, but not our last.
While adoption is definitely for me, maybe it’s not for you. Maybe you chose to have kids the old-fashioned way. Maybe you choose both. Maybe you choose to not have kids at all. All fine. However, orphan care is something that everyone can take part in.
Today, I encourage anyone who is reading this to learn a little about ways to get involved to support orphans here in the US and all over the world.
