Do you know this?

What about the other kids?

So you are adopting or hoping to adopt. What about the other kids, who may not get a chance at a home?

If you are in process or hoping to be soon, you will more than likely have some "wait time" to get your child home. During this time the wait can seem unbearable, at this time it is good to keep busy and what better way than to help some deserving children and even families. Some kids who may wait even longer than us PAP's have to wait and they may never even get a home. Perhaps some will even be fortunate enough to stay with their birth family with our help. What can we do? While there are many things we could do and so wish we could do to help them, I found one way to help them and all it costs you is some time.
I ran across this great website, it is fun and even somewhat addicting. I had a hard time stopping once I got going. It was fun and I knew I was helping another person as well. You can even have your kids use the site and improve their vocabulary. To see what I mean, check out the site.
It may seem a small help to you, but each little help we can give is better than no help at all.
You could even consider sponsoring a child, which brings it's own great rewards as you correspond with them.
