One Life - One Legacy: Calling All Men - It's Time for War

I stumbled across this post from a man who has a great passion for orphans. He has 10 kids some of his own but it looks like most of them are adopted. This really hit home for me and seriously boosted my level of encouragement. Read his post and he talks about how women have risen to the challenged to defend the cause of the orphans but where are the men in this picture? I must applaud all the women out there who are doing this in the name of Jesus including my amazing wife. We both had a desire to adopt but her desire far out shot mine. She powered through all the annoying paperwork and set up all the needed appointments because she felt the urgency to obey Jesus' command of defending the cause of the fatherless. She has kept me going and now that all our paperwork is finished my adrenaline levels are starting to spike. I just want to encourage all the men out there that are contemplating adoption and thinking can I love another child that isn't my own or how will we pay for this? All I can say is Listen to God and He will take care of all your worries. Men we need to catch up and run right along our wives and lead the charge to defend the MILLIONS of orphans! Like this man wrote below....I'm not so sure this will be the last child we adopt. It's all in God's hands but right now I'm pretty fired up!
