If Everyone Followed Through

Our dining room table has been taken over by paperwork for the adoption process (but that's certainly okay). Recently, we read that if every person who ever thought about adoption followed through with it, there would be no orphans in the world. You know, since we've started this process I cannot tell you how many people have said to us "We've thought about adopting" or "We've looked into it". Soooo many people have made these types of comments to us. I'm certainly glad people think about and look into it but we can really end the orphan crisis in this world if each person who has ever thought about it actually did it. I want to encourage you today, if you've ever thought about or looked into it, to follow through with it and give a child in need a chance. The paperwork, the cost, the time, it's all worth it and it's all doable. Today is your day to give a child a chance!


  1. Michael,

    How do you get started?



  2. Juan,
    Here is the link: Starting The Adoption Process. Blessings. If I can help you at all, let me know.

  3. wow...your wife looks like she's incredibly organized!
    also, a minor correction...the stat i read was that if every person who considered adoption followed through with the process, there would be no waiting children in the u.s. foster care system--not the world.
    either way, a pretty significant statistic, and it definitely shows the need for increasing awareness/access to adoption assistance.
