Christian Alliance for Orphans

Summit V in Irving, Texas has come and gone. It was great to see many friends and also to make many new ones! Excited to see how the Christian Alliance For Orphans moves forward with Jedd Medefind as the Executive Director. It was great to meet him and I believe he is ready to do the job! He is passionate about adoption and engaging the church to get involved in caring for orphans.

Adoption from China in 2009

This is an interesting article that I read today from Time magazine. "
Why Americans Are Adopting Fewer Kids from China"
I believe that a lot of this is propaganda about there being fewer orphans in China and how many are being adopted domestically. It is also going to take several generations for them to begin valuing their girls. It would be great if some of this speculation could be backed up with statistics. But who would believe them? I do hope there is a cultural shift beginning to take place because it will take in-country orphan care and adoption solutions to really make a large impact in the future for the orphans in China.
