It's not my responsibility or 'problem'...

How do you respond to someone who feels this way about orphans, widows & the needy?

If they are a believe share with them that THEY are adopted! Here are some verses to share with them:

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Ephesians 1:4-6

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress... James 1:27

Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. Isaiah 1:17

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves… rescue those being led away to death… Proverbs 31:8a & 24:11a

We know God treasures each precious life from many verses in the Bible! Here are some examples:

I praise you because I am 
fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are 
wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap 
nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not 
worth much more than they?... But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, 
and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:26 & 33

Now if you have read the above verses God holds you 

responsible to act! He gave us the privilege to serve, 

to give, to adopt, to minister 
to others in need!!

Proverbs 24:12 tells us that Once our eyes are opened we cannot pretend we do 
not know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows we 
know and holds us responsible to act.

God doesn't call everyone to adopt, but He does call 

everyone to care for orphans.
