Easy answer, right? Maybe not. Our definition of 'orphan' is any child whose parents cannot (or will not) care for them as a child needs to be cared for properly. Thus, the parents may have died, or maybe the parents are still alive, but unable to care for their child due to illness, poor choices (eg. in prison), poverty, unwillingness or lack of knowledge.Examples:
