Did you know????
34% of Christian Families consider adoption
ONLY 1% actually do it
There are 163+ Million Orphans in the World who desperately need a Forever Family...
If ONLY 7% of Christian families would adopt...there would be NO MORE ORPHANS!
My Blog List
Feel free to use anything that you find useful on this blog. We are all in this together, all trying to advocate for the orphan and raise awareness of the need to ADOPT. I am not trying to attach my name to anything, just trying to bring attention to the fatherless.
