Opinion about giving

Currently, my family gives away a certain percentage of our money, the majority to our church. With some of it, however, we sponsor two children through Compassion and also support 4 missionary staff members of Cru (interdenominational conservative college parachurch ministry).

Our giving for Cru people is pretty minimal ($55/month total). My wife and I both dearly want to pursue adoption, but currently the cost is very prohibitive for us. We recently discussed the idea of reallocating that $55/month to an adoption account. The $55 is split up between 4 people, so I don't know that they would miss it too terribly much, and truthfully, we've been less-than-thrilled with Cru as an organization lately.

I feel uneasy in the sense that the money we're 'giving' isn't going away from us, just away from our checking/savings accounts. On the other hand, it's going toward a purpose the Lord clearly has a heart for.

What do you all think? I'm interested in opinions and can't imagine I'd be hurt by either view.
