Shepherding Orphans in Haiti

The whole world is watching a Baptist group from Idaho that tried to take a group of 33 Haitian orphans away from their homes in light of the recent earthquake.  Certainly many Haitian children will be in desperate need of adoption in the coming months.  But are the actions of these well intentioned people the right way to go about helping children from Haiti?  Adoption is a wonderful and serious matter that should not be taken into lightly.  As Dr. Moore and his guest, Jedd Medefind, note on today’s program, the Christian desire to help orphans in Haiti is a wonderful thing, however, it should not be entered into without thoughtful care.  These circumstances serve as a serious reminder that the Church needs to rise up with faithful prayer and be genuinely concerned about orphans all over the world.
