Linny is one of my go-to reads over at a Place Called Simplicity and she linked up her hubby’s post Calling all men . It’s great, for once a man is an orphan advocate challenging other men. It’s true that the orphan advocacy scene is dominated by women right now. We’re the ones with the heartstrings pulled towards these children. I see more posts about how to talk your husband into adoption than men chomping at the bit to adopt like this guy. I think part of that is the natural protectiveness and responsibility men feel towards their wives and children. It can produce a lot of anxiety to have to protect and provide for one more. Men think it’s not about having big hearts but big pockets. But God provides, He’s the father and takes care of our needs. So go for it men!
