When you pray for orphans and for families who are adopting, you are partnering with God’s heart in such an incredible way. In Luke 18 Jesus says that those who cry out night and day will have “speedy justice.”
Adoptions range from $7,000 – $30,000 or more so it really does take a community to rescue a life. We are among many who are CURRENTLY RAISING FUNDS for Adoption and you may know some who are in that stage as well. Connect with them. Any gift from five dollars to thousands will be so very meaningful to them and impact a real life.
Adoption changes the life of a child forever. There are 128,000 children in the U.S. Foster Care system just waiting to be adopted. There are millions more internationally.
Giving time and energy to care for a child can change their life forever. You may have an organization that does this in through mentoring or big brother / big sister programs, or you may know families and be able to come over and help in a regular way. Either way, a couple hours a week can make a huge impact.
Don’t want to bother with an organization? Get involved yourself. Ask if you can mow a lawn, wash a car or help with a household project they are working on. Any amount of help you can give will go a long way for families who have adopted.
Your church may already have adoption support on their radar, but if they don’t you can suggest it as a mission project! Saving the life of an orphan from an abusive, neglectful or abandoned situation will change their life forever. What better ongoing mission project than to get to the end of the year knowing your church has rescued orphans!

There are 163 million orphans. Be a voice for the voiceless. The adoption revolution is made up of revolutionaries who will use every avenue they have to tell people about the crisis of orphans and what they can do about it.
