God's Heart is for the Orphan

God's heart is for the orphan!
He longs for his children to be in families.

James 1:27 says, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

Praise the LORD for people with encouraging words!!! 
So many friends and family have blessed us so much already with your prayers, kind words and encouragement. 
Thank you! 
Your words are a gift from heaven above! :)
