"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

Orphan Sunday

Today is National Orphan Sunday. Please pray for the 147 million orphans in the world who are waiting for their forever families.

Also pray for the families considering adoption.

Over one third of Americans seriously consider adoption, but only 2% actually adopt.

Every orphan needs a forever family.

Psalm 68:6 - "God sets the lonely in families." Could you be one of those families?

We are forever thankful for two very special little orphans that God placed in our hearts.

thank you so much for letting me know. I didn't even know it nor did I hear about it.

We hope to have one of those little Orphans ourselves one day.

We've been blessed with four of these precious children. Praying for all of those who are still in need of forever families.
