Wait No More

It’s hard not to see that God is rousing hearts on behalf orphans when you hear about “Wait No More.”  Focus on the Family teams up with local churches, ministries, government and adoption agencies for these region-wide events.  Their purpose:  to help Christians understand the needs of children waiting in foster care in their area and consider opening their homes to love them.  The most recent “Wait No More” event last Saturday in southern California drew roughly 800 people, representing 450 families.   Local county employees, other foster system workers, ministries and community organizations were on hand to answer questions and help interested families explore the possibility of adoption.  Remarkably, 208 southern California families began the adoption process.  They join the 340 families that took a similar step at the two prior “Wait No More” events in Colorado and Missouri.  More events are already in the works.  This is what it looks like for the Church to make God’s heart visible to the world.  See the Denver Post coverage of Colorado’s event here, or learn more about “Wait No More” at www.icareaboutorphans.org.
