hard to hear for those who wish to adopt

child catchersWhile it’s certainly laudable that evangelicals want to help address the needs of poor children around the world, the movement needs to understand that the real crisis is often not one of orphanhood, but one of poverty, poor development and a lack of child welfare infrastructure that leaves many families turning to orphanages in a time of need and making permanent decisions for what could be temporary problems. Those realities are apparent to many people who work on the ground in developing countries, but it’s a message that has been hard to hear for many adoptive parents — particularly the very mobilized members of the Christian adoption movement. – http://eagoodlife.wordpress.com/2013/06/03/whole-life/
