Orphans Deserve Better

posted by Robert Gelinas

With the release of the movie Orphan, Warner Bros. is portraying these beautiful, though often wounded, children as horrors.  There is a campaign to counteract this called:  Orphans Deserve Better.  

As an adoptive father of five (and for much of the last year, the we were foster parents of three addition children) I know first hand that what they have experienced has been a horror but themeselves are not…they are beloved children of God. 

Please take the time to sign the petition stating that orphans deserver better.

The goal is to ask Warner Brothers to donate a portion of the profit from this movie to help the over 140 million orphans in our world.

The commercial for this movie reminded me of how the the unholy trinity: the world, the flesh & the devil distort, contort and manipulate the least, the last and the lost for the agenda of the kingdom of darkness. Finding myself really longing for something engaging that compels my attention or draws me, rather than scares me or makes me look over my shoulder…

I was a Foster parent for HIV infants. Had to get out – not because of the kids but because of the system.
