Are You Called to Adopt Internationally?

We’ve all seen them. The pictures that  grab your heart and won’t let go. The faces of children who long to be loved as they deserve. How many of us have been moved by these pictures enough to adopt one of these precious children? We can continue to post these pictures in the hope to inspire and bring awareness to the orphan epidemic, but what is the use of awareness if action is not taken? If you feel called to adopt internationally, we want you to seriously pray about beginning this journey.

We are going to be honest with you. International adoption is not for the weary-hearted. Adopting internationally is full of highs and lows and at times the process can seem daunting, but the reward of bringing your child home far outweighs any trial. God’s Word constantly presents how precious children are to the Lord, and that we are mandated to look after orphans.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being.”

-James 1:27

“If only 7 percent of the 2 billion Christians in the world would care for a single orphan in distress, there would effectively be no more orphans. If everybody would be willing to simply do something to care for one of these precious treasures, I think we would be amazed by just how much we could change the world.”

-Steven Curtis Chapman

Pray for Russia

Image

This morning, I was reading the news, and my heart broke for the current adoption situation in Russia. According to a recent bill approved by President Vladimir Putin, Americans will no longer be able to adopt Russian orphans , leaving hundreds of thousands of innocent children to pay for a political catastrophe. This motion is a result of dissension between US and Russian governments over human-rights violations.

Even  though the United States has been a top foreign country for Russian orphans to go, Russia feels they could find suitable homes for the multitude of orphans within their country.

As an international adoption agency, our goal is to place children in loving Christian families, and any hindrance to this is a call to fervent prayer. We hope you will stand with us and pray God opens the door for these children to find homes.
