Tony & Lauren Dungy Speak Out about Adoption and Caring for the Fatherless

Please take a moment to watch this challenging video from Tony Dungy (NFL coach of the 2007 Superbowl champions, the Indianapolis Colts) and his wife Lauren.  They are adoptive parents, adoption advocates and faithful Christ followers.  After viewing the video, I encourage you to find at least one person that you can forward it to.

How can I get involved.

Great question. Sometimes it's hard to know where to start. There are lots of ways you can get involved even if you don't feel called to foster or adopt. First, do some research to educate yourself so that you in turn can educate others on what the plight of the fatherless is. Contact a local adoption or foster care agency to find out their needs. Start a ministry at your church. Donate to a family's adoption fund. Mentor a child in foster care. Check out some of the links on our blog and see if God tugs at your heart to get involved in one of them. Pray for God to lead you.
