    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    My family is just waiting for a visa, so we can bring our newly adopted daughter home from Haiti. Nothing could have made me happier today than to see the beautiful children of Haiti. Great photos! Thanks

    What about the Homeless children in America? Why dont they count? Why do we go to other countries instead of taking care of our own?

    I agree with eddie. Why don’t we take care of our fellow Minnesotans (and other peeps around the U.S.)? Why don’t we take care of the homeless in OUR country! I’m going to go out and adopt a minnesotan child in poverty!!!

    I used to feel the same way as you Chuck and Eddie, but then I realized that the homeless in our country are considered wealthy compared to the homeless in other countries. THAT is why we sponsor children there.

    Unless we teach family planning, in less than 50 years the planet will have doubled its population.Over 20,000 children die DAILY due to poverty already. How can we sustain a growing population if our natural supplies are already being depleted?
    At this rate, we are eating tomorrow’s seed already, and there will be nothing left but total devastation. See what happened in Easter Island. They destroyed the environment, and had to end cannibalizing humans leaving nothing behind but stone monumnets of their religion

    I don’t see helping children in the U.S. versus abroad as an either/or scenario. There are caring, wonderful people working diligently in both fields. This particular organization works with children abroad. Other organizations work with children and families in the U.S.

    There’s room at the table for everyone willing to help children — especially children in poverty — wherever they may be. The important thing is that you come to the table at all.
