40 Days of Prayer, day 21

Day 21: "Today, pray for the government leaders in your country.  Ask the Lord to burden their hearts for the orphans.  Ask that they would feel compelled to protect and provide for orphans."

Did you know:

There are nearly 500,000 children in foster care in the United States. 
Over 250,000 will never return home.
Over 123,000 need adoptive homes right now.
More than 29,000 aged out of foster care in 2008, at age 18 without anyone, to live on their own, unprepared and unsupported.

Can you change the life of a waiting child?
Can you adopt? Can you foster
