Learned about an awesome movement of local churches, non-profit-faith-based orgs teaming up to solve problems the goverenment was never meant to fix. We took our kiddos to an adoption summit this weekend just to get information and see the good work that's being done in this social cause. I think one of our dreams, as a couple, is to adopt in the next few years. 5 kids sounds like a good number! We have three now, so two more... With every dream/vision, there needs to be plans, so our first step this weekend was to simply get information on the subject. Christians have a clear command to care for orphans, and there are many ways to get involved-like praying, giving, mobilizing your church, or adopting. Whichever you decide, there is planty of guidance and support as you walk down this incredibly rewarding path. So embrace the call, avoid the trap of thinking "someone else will help," and let's make the US a place where every orphan waiting in foster care has a family. Question: What vision do you have? What simply, first, steps are you taking to make your dreams/visions real? Start today with your first step (research, interview people, go to a meeting, pray, etc.). A wise mentor of mine once said, if you do something, something will happen--every time! So, if you have something that God has placed on your heart--do something about it! CP
