This video tugs at your heartstrings! This adorable boy shares statistics that will blow your mind.

So many children throughout the world are malnourished and poorly cared for, not because people are necessarily cruel, but because there are simply not enough caregivers to meet the needs of orphaned or homeless children.

Why adoption?  There are children everywhere, including here in America, who need a home and a place to live. They deserve a family. They deserve love. They deserve to feel they are important. Please consider adopting a child, either internationally or through the foster care program.
