Families form an important part of a child’s growing up. But there are many children who get separated from their families and end up as orphans waiting to get adopted and for a new family to welcome them. Growing up without the love and care of a family is an experience very few of us can fathom. And when these kids do finally get adopted, their joy knows no bounds.
