For those interested in pursuing adoption of Haitian orphans, we want to share a few important thoughts regarding this desire. The process by which orphans will be adopted from Haiti post-earthquake is still unclear as much of the infrastructure has been wiped out. Regarding a desire to adopt a Haitian orphan—first of all, the reality of this crisis does not change the fact that the most important consideration in any adoption is obedience to God. If God is calling you to adopt from Haiti (or anywhere else for that matter) then you should pursue it. However, we must caution others to not mistake the emotional response to the devastation we see with the clear direction of God’s Spirit in our lives.

I think adoption is hugely connected with the pro-life movement. Being known as pro-lifers, we want to be completely consistent with our message. If we’re saying that these so-called “unwanted children” should be brought into the world, then of course we should be thinking of what we can do to care for those who need to be placed somewhere because their parents can’t care for them.
