“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this:
To visit orphans and widows in their afflictions,
And to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
One of my dreams has always been to adopt. While the Lord has not yet seen to bless me with this opportunity, I pray that in future He opens the door for this dream to be fulfilled. In His Word, He admonishes us to care for the orphans and widows. I have done a lot of research into the process of becoming a foster parent and adoption. I want to share some of those resources with you today.
