Defending the cause

Sadly, I've no news to share on the adoption front.
I've been spending time looking for Scripture that speaks to God's heart for orphans. Here are some wonderful pictures of this very heart:

In Isaiah 1:17, He commands us to
Learn to do good.
Seek justice.
Help the oppressed.
Defend the cause of orphans.
Fight for the rights of widows.

Proverbs 31:8 tells us to
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.

Who would be more speechless, more powerless, more oppressed, than orphans living in institutions?
