The author has 5 really good points;
1. God works through willing hearts.
2 Changing the world will ultimately change you.
3. You can't change the world without a community.
4. You can't change the world with good intentions.
5. Changing the world will take you to the end of yourself.
The only thing I have to add to this is, why do you have to go to a foreign country to do all these things when there are thousands of children awaiting adoption right here? The world will be the same better place by helping a child right in your own community. All children without stable homes are at-risk.
Again, in California, adoption will be encouraged with the new laws. Foster parents who are now working to become certified will also be certified to adopt. I really believe in the foster care system, and that the adoption will be more likely to succeed if they are a foster family first.
I would love to hear your ideas on this topic. Contact me please.
