The numbers

Last night I read the Wistrom Family Blog, and read some startling statistics.
We know there are 5 million orphans in Ethiopia right now. So, how many of those children are finding forever families in the U.S.? Last year, 1,725 did. 1725 out of 5 million!!! (I really thought it would be more).

There are over 143,000,000 orphans in the entire world. Last year, 17,433 children were adopted into our country. 17,433 out of 143,000,000!!!
(I had hoped it would be more)

Have you considered adoption? Is God whispering in your ear to love the least of these? I pray there will be more!!
