Others, who have been bereaved, can feel cast adrift. Institutional care leaves much to be desired, and even the extended family situation in many countries is not free of tensions and inequalities.
All in all, whichever way we view the plight of orphans, they are rarely shown enough love and understanding. Some Christian couples have risen to the challenge of providing practical care as foster parents, or even adopting orphans. Others seek to help the street children found in many of the cities of the world, or regularly visit orphanages.
