Drop in International Adoptions

Here is an interesting AP article about the lowest number of international adoptions since 1996. Of the three leading countries in 2008, China and Russia have slowed and Guatemala adoptions have stopped all together. Total numbers into the US have dropped from 22,990 in 2004 to only 12,573 in 2009.

There are continued efforts by UNICEf and other international children's organizations to limit international adoption. A well researched document by Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Bartholet, exposes these organizations and their agendas. There are still millions of children languishing in institutions. Adoption into a permanent family is the best solution for these orphans and we must continue to create awareness and advocate for them.

Randy Alcorn adoption interview highlights ABBA Fund

I work with Jason Kovacs at ABBA Fund and he interviewed Randy Alcorn earlier this year about adoption. The latest Eternal Perspective Ministries quarterly newsletter highlights this interview. My brother Dwight just called me to see if I knew that it was in there when he received the paper newsletter this week. Jason posted earlier this week about it and I thought I would do the same. It is an excellent interview. Many thank to Jason Kovacs and Randy Alcorn!

Tony Dungy and Adoption

I was sharing with a friend about Together For Adoption this morning and came across a video of Tony Dungy that Dan Cruver had posted. I really appreciate how Tony expresses his heart and desire to adopt and how he is using the resources that God has given his family to make a life changing and eternal impact on children's lives.
