Warning: Orphan Awareness Will Break Your Heart

Orphan Awareness Month
There are over 140 millions orphans worldwide

I’m not sure how I missed it, but November is Orphan Awareness Month. Many churches designated November 7th and Orphan Sunday. This is part of a larger movement among Christians to get serious about loving these hurting children.

This is a problem that should break our hearts and move our hands to action. Here is a video from the Christian Alliance for Orphans that you need to watch.

If that’s not enough to break your heart, check out this blog post from one adoptive mom. She tells the heartbreak of leaving behind the little ones in an orphanage in Ukraine. These are the children who are there, sitting in cribs all day every day, waiting for someone to adopt them. (Thanks Tim Challies for the link.)

At your Thanksgiving dinners this week, let’s remember these children who are suffering. Say a prayer for the Orphans around the world who need a miracle from God.

Maybe you can be that miracle…
