Why Adopt

Why Adopt? 


  1. It is estimated that between 143,000,000 and 210,000,000 children are orphans. That’s at least 143 MILLION children in the world today. (Recent UNICEF report.)
  2. EVERY DAY, 5,760 more children in the world become orphans.
  3. EVERY 2.2 SECONDS another orphan ages out, with no family and no home.
  4.  Older orphans are vulnerable . . . to abuse, suicide, prostitution, slavery, becoming child soldiers

Why WE want to Adopt

  1. Because we want more children and while we could have more biological children, and may even go on to do so, we have been called to adopt.
  2.  If not us, then who? Who will go?
  3. Because we can, because we have enough; enough love, enough room, enough food, enough resources to give another.
  4. To bring hope to one of the 147 million orphans.
  5. To live out our beliefs.
  6. Because every child deserves a family, and no child deserves to feel hungry, perpetually alone, or hopelessly unloved.
  7. Yes we know WE can't help every child, but we can show others the orphan crisis and how to adopt, and they can show others, and they can show others....God uses ordinary people and he has a plan!
  8. Because after you have seen the plights of the most helpless, you can't act like you haven't seen it...
