Orphaned No More

Pictured are 16 kids who less than a month ago were orphans. Some living in an orphanage, some in foster homes. No mommies. No daddies. No families.

Today each one is being loved on by a mommy and daddy. They are part of a family. They are no longer orphans.

Amazing doesn't even begin to describe it.

Not only that, but it was amazing to see how each child "fit" with their forever family. You could see the fingerprints of God through the placement of each child. He knew. He made it happen. It's miraculous really.

So many of you were part of our miracle. You gave financially. You prayed.

You prayed. Never underestimate the power that was unleashed because you prayed.

I have been so humbled and encouraged by your support, your comments and your prayers.

And while I know you already know this... you can continue to participate in the miraculous. There are millions of orphans who need your support, your comments and your prayers.

How can you help? You can give financially to organizations like Lifesong for Orphans.

Lifesong offers adoption grants to families who want to adopt but can't afford it. They also work with orphans in Ukraine, Liberia, Zambia, India and Honduras bringing them hope and aid in the name of Jesus.

You can pray for the orphaned child. You can pray for the families who are adopting and have adopted. You can pray that more and more families would be called to adopt or foster or get involved in some way.

You can act. You can raise awareness, host an Orphan Sunday event, visit the orphaned, adopt.

We all have the opportunity to participate in the miraculous.

The question is, will we respond and join in?
