Adoption Made More Difficult
New rules on international adoption mean that more children are languishing in orphanages. “The inter-country adoption rate in the United States already has fallen by nearly 80 percent; down from a peak of nearly 23,000 foreign adoptions in 2004, to around 5,000 in fiscal year 2017.”
Can this be acceptable to the Christian community in view of the following biblical admonition? “This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress…” (James 1:27).
