“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families.” – Psalm 68:5-6a
The Old Testament contains more than 40 scriptures that show God’s concern and compassion for orphans. Then and now, God’s people are called to care for this disenfranchised and neglected segment of society. Adoption is the most loving and permanent way to care for these little ones. Although there are challenges in the adoption process and parenting in general, if God is calling your family to adopt a child, it will be a blessing.
