Adoption

Last night Liz and I went to this adoption orientation meeting. We're not adopting a kid right now, but we want to be open to that possibility. The best thing I got out of the meeting was a couple of stats.
  • Currently there are 5000 kids in South Carolina's foster care system.
  • 1600 of them are available for adoption.
That's a lot of kids, don't you think? But, also, it's a manageable number. The book of James talks about how true religion is taking care of the orphan and widow. What if 5000 Christian families in SC decided to take that seriously? Talk about making a tangible difference in this state.
