147 Million

At one time it was estimated that there were 147 MILLION orphans in this world! 147 MILLION!!! In recent research it is estimated that there are currently approximately 143 MILLION orphans. I mean, either number you look at it's seriously alarming!

The truth is that the 143 million orphaned children and the 11 million who starve to death or die from PREVENTABLE diseases and the 8.5 million who work as child slaves, prostitutes, or under other horrific conditions and the 2.3 million who live with HIV add up to 164.8 million needy children. And though at first glance that looks like a BIG number, 2.1 billion people on the earth proclaim to be Christians.

The truth is that if only 8 percent of  the Christians would care for one more child there would not be any statistics left.-Katie Davis Kisses from Katie

Only 8 percent of Christians need to act...we need education...we need to know that we can make a difference! This needs to be shouted from the churches, in homes, in schools! But it is not...and that is discouraging! But still, we have the power to make a difference...only 8 percent of us who proclaim to be Christians have the power to put an end to these statistics. In James we hear over and over we need to not just be hearers of the word, but DOers!!

I have said over and over that Nick and I are changed! God has not only given us a heart for adoption but a serious burden for the helpless and needy children of this world. We WILL be one of the 8 percent that makes a difference for one. Although, I already acknowledge it won't stop with one:)!

So, all this to say you can help us make a difference for one and for many at the same time! We have teamed up with to help fundraise for our own adoption. In addition to helping us, by pre-ordering a tee-shirt or other merchandise from us, your purchases will help feed other orphans throughout this world. And MORE importantly, call awareness to this epidemic!

Here is what you need to do-
-Check out
-Decide what cute (or handsome) shirt you might want to wear
-Email me at with your selection
-I will order and deliver to you

How blessed is he who considers the helpless.Psalm 41:1
