Another website that provides a wealth of information about orphans and adoption: The Christian Alliance for Orphans: www.christianalliancefororphans.org .
From their website:
"The Christian Alliance for Orphans unites more than 100 respected Christian organizations and a national network of churches. Working together, our joint initiatives inspire, equip and connect Christians to “defend the fatherless” (Isaiah 1:17).
"Ultimately, we seek to stimulate and help grow Christian communities committed to adoption, foster care and global orphan care in the local church. Our united efforts include the national Summit, the Orphan Sunday campaign, monthly webinars, and an array of other initiatives.
"As the Alliance helps Christians understand God’s call to care for the orphan and equips them for effective response, the impact reaches far beyond a single program or met need. Rather, an ever-expanding army of passionate advocates invest time, talent and treasure in a personal and sustained commitment to caring for orphans in the name of Christ.
"Alliance membership includes three primary categories: organization, church and individual. Regional or National Alliances of churches may join as affiliates of the Alliance. Together, all Alliance members advance a vision larger than any one of us. Without the Alliance, most members would work in isolation or even competition. Instead, the unifying leadership of the Alliance creates shared impact no one organization, church or individual could achieve alone."
Churches may join the Alliance without having to pay a membership fee.
Thank you, Christian Alliance for Orphans, for providing a wide array of useful information about adoptions and orphan ministry!
