107,000 Waiting

More than 250,000 children in the U.S. enter the foster care system every year. Each year more than 20,000 children age out of the foster care without being adopted. Today there are 107,000 children in foster care waiting to be adopted ranging in age from less than a year old to 21.

Wednesday, November 9:

Pray for safe, stable foster homes and for reunions with healed families or for an alternative permanent, loving home for approximately 1,700 children in foster care in Jefferson and Shelby counties. Pray that God will use the foster system to call these children to Himself and use foster families to show children the love of Jesus.
