In the wake of the earthquake I have been flooded with folks inquiring about adopting from Haiti. I think every other adoption, orphancare ministry has experienced the same. It is amazing to see the response – families and couples who have been considering adoption and those who haven’t saying now might be the time.
In light of the circumstances in Haiti no one really knows when an adoption process will be established. As I wrote the other day, I hope and pray that it will be sooner than later for the sake of the children. That said, a friend reminded me yesterday that we need not forget the millions of other orphans in need of adoption around the world. Just this week another friend is headed to Uganda to adopt her son!
If God is stirring you adopt, keep praying. It may be Haiti God is calling you too but it may also be somewhere else in the world. The situation in Haiti has opened the world eyes to the plight of the orphan. May we rise to the call to care for these precious ones as our Heavenly Father does, in Haiti and everywhere else.
