November is a month devoted to awareness of the cause of the orphan. There are many things happening – many churches are doing special services. Saturday and Sunday, I’m speaking at two different events talking about how a church, how your church can support and encourage adoptive parents who have their kids home.
As part of that, and also as part of the blog series that I did on my personal blog at http://tomvanderwell.net, I wrote a handful of articles about the church and it’s relation to and impact on the orphan crisis.

I’d be grateful if you’d take a few minutes, maybe one a day for the next week? And read through them and if you find that they resonate with your feelings or insights into the orphan crisis, share them with others?
Thanks in advance,
