    James says to care for widows AND orphans.

    Kids want to be in a family. And no child needs to gratitude for that. All children should just have that. Not be a charitable act.

    Once you adopt the child isn't an orphan from your perspective. They are sons and daughters. Adoption isn't ministering to orphans. It's expanding family.

    These children in most cases had a parent. I find it amazing that Americans can fundraise to bring children into their large families yet a much smaller amount can reunite or keep a family family together in the first place. I don't understand how prop spectacle parents can complain it costs so much to add a child. Think of bio family who don't have enough to hold on to the children they were given. There is a charitable model that takes children away from parents to feed and educate and provide medical care for them. We call those places orphanages. But many didn't expect to forever lose their children. Process is in place to stop corruption. Ethiopia recently had a problem. Vietnam had a problem. Guatemala had a problem.

    This is a wonderful story of exceptional examples of love and reaching out. These parents have shown how much can be done by following inspiration and looking far beyond themselves. I wish them all the very best in coping with many challenges.

    The story is also well written. However, I believe that "importantly" is an adverb.

    Somehow kids without limbs playing music makes other challenges seem so small and insignificant (not all, but many). Kudos to this family.

    This is amazing! So many kids need loving homes and the light of Christ encourages us to be like this. Now if only it weren't so expensive, maybe more of us could do it. Cut out the beaurocracy and red tape and exorbitant fees and commissions and let more families participate in adoption!

    So happy for those kids.
