Come to think of it, shouldn't we all be advocates?

I didn't figure a thriller called Orphan would be good for adoptions.

I should have figured that orphan advocates would have a response.

I'm not sure how much of an effect the movie will have on people's attitudes toward orphans -- at least those who aren't like the one in the movie and (spoiler!) most of the 145,000,000 orphans worldwide aren't -- but I understand why the Christian Alliance for Orphans would take the opportunity to bring attention to their cause.

It's not really a cause, though, is it? It's a they, and they are children.
