November is an exciting month! We have one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. I get to bring out the Christmas music! Anthony gets his cast off and Grace turns 4 plus it's National Adoption Month! AND, November 3 just happens to be Orphan Sunday.
As I'm sure you have all guessed, orphans are a passion of mine. :) From the time I was very little I had a great interest in orphans which I now know was from the Lord. I have numerous fiction stories I wrote as child all with orphans as the main characters and finding a family was always a huge piece of the story arc.
On Orphan Sunday, I like to spend extra time in prayer for the precious children across the world who are waiting for love and a family. I would ask that you join me in remembering them in particular on this day and consider the additional ways to help care for them listed below.
10 ways to care for the Orphan and Waiting Child, compiled by Orphan Sunday.
