Help Save International Adoption by Signing this White House Petition

Adoption Petition - White House Petition

What is the Church, the Body of Christ, doing about this issue?

James 1:27 tells us that:  Pure religion is to look after ORPHANS and widows in their distress.

Furthermore, Eph 1:5 tells us that He ADOPTED us as His sons and daughters into his family – through Jesus Christ.

So acceptance into God’s family is done thru adoption and we’re commanded to look after orphans.

80% decline in international adoptions since 2004.

From 22K children adopted in 2004 to around 4K in 2016.

When you take into consideration the decrease each year, year after year, that is a decrease that has lead to tens of thousands of children to NOT be adopted. 

Because of this decrease, we estimate that some 129,000 were NOT adopted

 

But what if our leadership was pro-adoption and adoptions actually increased every year?  By say 5%? 

And if adoptions increased by 10% each year? 

 

We think most statisticians would agree that an estimated of 5-10% increase is not over-reaching.

Think about if it held true for these children – there would be nearly HALF a MILLION  less orphans today

We can’t change the past, but we can fight for the future. 

Below is a list of about 130 adoption professionals who agree with this opinion.

They’re the ones driving this change.

Sign the petition and help them. 

So, as a believer, do you feel the responsibility to do something? 

It is easier now than ever before.  All we ask is a signature.

Should take less than 1 minute.
