Today I want to link up a post from last November in which I created a free printable that I had created for Adoption Awareness Month. There is a download link within the post so that you may download a copy for yourself!
I encourage those of you that have adopted or have orphan care on your heart to take advantage of the next 30 days to help spread the word about adoption and orphan care. My friend Kelli created a 30 Day Share Adoption Challenge FB page if you are looking for ideas on how to do this. Not everyone in is a position to adopt and that's o.k., there are so many other ways to get involved! Help support a family that is in process, advocate, find a church in your area that is participating in Orphan Sunday tomorrow, support an organization that provides medical and nutritional care for children in orphanages and foster care abroad...Love Without BoundariesShow HopeAgape Family Life House and Half The Sky are just a few. Research ways you can help the thousands of children in the US foster care system.
There are so many children right now who are waiting for families and it is imperative to help spread the word about adoption, but what can we do to help ensure that families are preserved? This Post at No Hands But Ours is a must read in my opinion and lists several resources for organizations that work towards orphan prevention.
What will you do in the next 30 days to help spread the word. If you have a heart for adoption, don't let fear stand in the way.
