Lawmakers Agree: Children Have The Right To A Family

For You From The Word

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord;
he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.
(Proverbs 21:1)

For You To Think About

Parent holding child's handU.S. senators and representatives from both sides of the political aisle agree: “The right of a child to grow up in a safe, loving and permanent relationship with a responsible adult is a basic human right.”

That is direct language from the Families for Orphans Act (H.R. 3070 and S. 1458), introduced in 2009 by Senators Mary Landrieu and James Inhofe (R-OK) and Representatives John Boozman (R-AR) and Diane Watson (D-CA). The act proposed establishing the Office of Orphan Policy within the Department of State, responsible for a comprehensive strategy advocating for the preservation of families. The introduction of the bill is considered a victory for adoption advocates.

The bill shows that lawmakers agree as the rights of children, the value of families … and how God can work next among lawmakers on behalf of children and families.

For You To Pray

Loving Father,
Work in the hearts of our country’s leaders to agree and pass legislation protecting millions of vulnerable children.
