This BBC4 special, “Bulgaria’s Abandoned Children,” is several years old and has been updated; however the basic principle is the same. Throughout the world, including the US, children are abandoned, especially those who are developmentally delayed or suffer from mental and/or physical impairments. This should not be the case.
James 1:26-27 – “Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (NIV, emphasis mine).
