We’ve Got to Do What Good We Can!

orphan, little one, hearts, promise
“I always say to people when I have the chance to talk to them
about Orphan’s Promise: we can’t change them all,
but we can speak to the ones who cross our paths.
We can make a difference.
You can’t just sit down because you can’t fix the whole problem.
You gotta do what you can with what’s in front of you.”
~ Terry Meeuwsen,
Author, Singer, Co-Host – CBN 700 Club,
Miss America (1973) & Director – Orphan’s Promise
