Here are a few practical ways you can serve the orphan:
- Give to a local or international orphan care or adoption ministry
- Advocate for the orphan
- Volunteer locally or internationally
- Go on a mission trip
- Become a Foster Home
- Become a Respite Care Provider (short-term for fostering)
- Support those who foster, adopt, or work with those who do
As you look through this list, pray with an open heart. Look for information and talk to those who are actively involved. This is a process. If God wants yout to foster or adopt, tehre are classes, background checks and paperwork. Do NOT be discouraged. It could seem overwhelming at times, but God is the one who provides. It is not all on your shoulders.
