Being an advocate for adoption, sometimes I hear... "Why can't more people adopt kids here at home? Why do people go overseas?"
Well... I am passionate about finding homes for ALL children. Sometimes international adoption is a better fit for families... sometimes domestic adoption is a better fit. Once people start digging, they usually discover which one their heart is ready for-- sometimes it's both!
Lately, I've been thinking about adoption. I just spoke about it at a recent fundraiser, my Korean sister was in town for a visit, and I just found out that some work I did concerning foster children received an Emmy nomination. It's a tremendous honor to be up for a Mid-America Emmy this year, but really, I'm more happy that the work has helped children find loving families and permanent homes.
So here's my question. What can you do for children?
A lot of people think they have to adopt. NO. That's not true! There are so many ways you can help.

When someone gives me a shout out that their is a need, then the work starts. Fulfilling that need no matter if its a bed, clothes, shoes, or even greater is attempted to get met. The Lord has blessed me enough to help pass a few smiles on with a help from my friends. Showing a little love is what it is all about.

The Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program is excellent and needs volunteers. When a child is removed from his/her home due to neglect or abuse and is placed in foster care by DSS, the court appoints a GAL to be the voice and advocate for that child. Great training is provided and an experienced mentor is assigned. Look at http://www.cfgala.org/galp/volunteer.html for more details.

Take him to a christian church and teach him about THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. You can give a child earthly things that doesn't heal their souls but the greatest gift of all is to believe in The Lord Jesus Christ and to accept Him as Savior. When he does that he will be alright. God will take care if you.
