Did you know that there are approximately 163 million orphans globally?  Or that there are over 300,000 kids in the U.S. foster care system?  Did you know that NY State has more than 25,000 kids in foster care – some of the highest numbers in the country?  And over 1,000 of them are right here in the Capital District?  Did you know that it is YOUR responsibility to do something about it?

Six years ago I didn’t know these things either…and I was an adoptive mom of 5 kids.  We began our journey because God led us on it and we stepped out in faith.  But, after preparing an Orphan Sunday event at our church and learning not only the statistics but also the Scriptures – I began asking, “Who is doing something about this?”  I knew if, as an adoptive mom, I didn’t know, then the people sitting next to me in church did not know either.  This is how Justice For Orphans was born.  And this is our mission:  To rally the Church for the cause of the fatherless – To educate & inspire Christians toward adoption and foster care – To support & educate foster & adoptive parents.

Pure and faultless religion in the sight of God our Father is this…that we must care for orphans…James 1:27

If you would like to learn how you can walk out James 1:27 then join us on Saturday, October 22nd in Rexford, NY.  Come be encouraged and equipped to protect the fatherless through orphan ministry, adoption, and foster care.  Details and registration on this website here.
