Someone once told me that she wished everyone in the world would feel like she felt about adoption. That if everyone would adopt a child, it wouldn’t be a problem anymore. I told her that we should all do our part to care for orphans, but we’re not all called to adopt. I also told her that even if every orphan in the world today had a home another would be born tomorrow without one.
Because of sin, orphans will always be longing for a home. It’s a sad situation, for sure, but it’s a situation that is not without hope.
