Adopting Caroline Li

Saturday, December 16, 2006

As we have gone though the process of bringing Caroline into our family, our awareness of the global crisis of 143 million orphaned children has been significantly heightened. We have also been enlightened as to how much the Bible talks about God’s heart for these children. For example:

“…you are the defender of orphans…Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will listen to their cries and comfort them. You will bring justice to the orphans and oppressed, so people can no longer terrify them.” --Psalm 10: 14, 17-18

“Vindicate the weak and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.”— Psalm 82:3-4

“Dispense true justice and practice kindness and compassion each to his brother; and do not oppress the widow or the orphan…”— Zechariah 7:9-12
