Every Single Child

A friend shared a very poigniant blog on Facebook today from Sarah Zuidema. In her blog she described a conference she attended where she heard about the tragic and horrible ways many of the world's children become orphaned, kidnapped and sold into slavery or left for dead. As anyone can admit, sometimes when we hear these things we want to look away, hide our eyes because it is too much to bear...and I completely agree. The atrocities that are happening to children are horrific! But then, she describes the courageous stories of people who, though they have little, take full advantage of everything they do have and make the effort to accomplish small but amazing things.

Even though this world is filled with 163 million orphans...even though they became orphans in sometimes horrific manner...there are many ways we can HELP. My motto: if you can help, then DO IT.

You don't have to adopt to help, but helping to find an orphan a home by contributing to an adoption fund, contributing to help keep a family together, or advocating for these beautiful children can make a difference.

The goal of the organization in which Sarah Zuidema's works is to find a family for the 163 million orphans worldwide...thats EVERY SINGLE CHILD find a family. Their goal is to provide love and security to all of the world's orphans. It's such a simple, beautiful and possible vision....but we have to work together!

Go hear to read the blog from Sarah Zuidema
