Have you ever thought about adopting, about rescuing a child from a bad situation?

Today's Focus on the Family broadcast, The Plight of the Modern-Day Orphan, features a great discussion on the topic with my friends and colleagues, Paul McCusker and Kelly Rosati. They joined John and me to discuss the impact of Charles Dickens' tale Oliver Twist during an age when orphans were largely disregarded, and reiterate today's need for orphan protection and care.

I invite you to listen here, but you'd also be interested in watching this powerful testimony about a modern-day Oliver. Just a warning, though, it is not appropriate for children.

How great is the need!
