I thought I would provide a few links of posts that are worth reading.
From “Family Hope Love” Who are the fatherless in the world today? and What the Bible doesn’t say about adoption and orphan care.
From “Gracelings” this link takes you to all posts tagged ethics. Read them all or just scroll down to read “Culture of Adoption”? because she will make you think about what that really means.
Finally – this blog is fast becoming one of my favorites. So much passion, great pictures, and a variety of posts mostly on Rhino’s and Elephants and the need for preservation - some posts make you want to cry and others make you smile. So worth reading. Fight for Rhinos.
Edited because I forgot to add the link to Who are the fatherless in the world today?….sigh…
