Do Try this At Home

What's that? You say you like what you've been reading on the Crazy Blog and you may want to try some of this craziness at home? No -- I'm not necessarily saying everyone should go out and adopt two children from Africa (although I'm not necessarily not saying that either).

We're all commanded to care for the widow and the orphan. "Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you." James 1:27, NLT.

The application of that verse may look different for all of us. But it's not optional. And it is serious.

There are many ways to care for the orphan. And just in case you're at a loss, below I've listed a couple of ideas to get you started.

The Cupcake Kids
If you're looking for a way to raise money and awareness for orphan causes and want to involve your children, look no further. Check out http://www.TheCupcakeKids.org/.

Support a Family in the Process of Adoption
Domestic adoption is expensive. International adoption is crazy expensive. If you're not adopting yourself, you should be supporting a family that is. If you don't know one personally, let me introduce you to my friend Chasity -- adopting not one but two precious children from Uganda. Purchasing her super cute adoption t-shirts will not only help bring home her babies but they are also offering an amazing give away that will help additional adoptive families and orphan causes. Wow!

Blog Project
My friend Lovelyn is on the brink of announcing an amazing project that will serve a serious orphan need in Africa. This opportunity will be open to anyone who follows or regularly reads her blog. Pop on over to http://www.momentswithlove.blogspot.com/, sign up as a follower and then stay tuned. You will be blessed, I promise... don't miss this one.

These are just some ideas from my own little world. There are many, many opportunties out there. If God has somehow used this little blog to stir your heart and inspire you for orphan causes, I would urge you not to wait another day to get started. There's no time like the present.

I am far, far away from having a family of my own with biological, or adopted, children, but I found your blog from My Ugly Couch and I love your heart and your mission! Thank you for sharing your story.
