Earthquake Orphans

One of the more heartrending and yet heartwarming angles to the Sichuan disaster is the way many families in China have stepped forward to express their interest in adopting an "earthquake orphan": "Chinese Eager to Adopt Quake Orphans." As a parent who has adopted two kids from Asia, I think often of the intricate circumstances that brought each of our precious children into this world and then into our world. And so I pray for each of the babies that became orphaned by the earthquake, that God might shepherd them through this unthinkable tragedy and into a family that will love them as much as we love our two.
