"You know you cannot save the world"

Ok if you are adopting then you heard this over and over and over......
Why are you bringing this child home?
You know you cannot change the World.
Why special needs?
Sooooo many things have been said!!!
We were having a discussion today about this.... 
How would you respond if someone said.....
"You cannot save the World"

Here were some answers we came up with..... feel free to share yours in the comments below
But together we can!

I can save THIS one (read the star fish story below)

"Yes, we CAN save the world! We just need EVERYONE to do their part!"

adopting a child will not change the world, but for that child the world will 


A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step 

"How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." 

"But why wouldn't you want to try?"

You can't save the entire world. BUT the world of even one child is saved...

Do not let what you can't do get in the way of what you CAN do

The greatest mistake is doing nothing because you can only do a little.

No, I can't save the world. but I can make a tangible difference for a few kids.

But I can make a difference.

 "I am not trying to save the world, that is God's job"

no you can not change the world, not all at once but you can change the world 


you might not be able to but to one person you could be the whole world..and 

the ripple effect of saving one will be seen and felt in others..

"But what if I can?"

 If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

"Thank God Jesus didn't have that attitude!"

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to 

speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Instead of being indifferent, why don't you try making a difference."

Jesus was only one child... and He was adopted.... Look at the difference HIS 

life made.

If you do not believe we can make a difference, Take a look at these.......
They say pictures are worth 1,000 words right??
