There are children all over the world who are lost, alone, hurting, and in so much need. Every child deserves the chance to have a life of hope. We have the ability to give them a life! Adoption means giving them a home, loving them, and most importantly teaching them about Jesus – so they will have a hope and a future. God has great plans for EVERY child. We can be part of the plan by caring for orphans. I have heard people say “they’ll never amount to anything.” Without our help orphans don’t have a future. Adoption is a beautiful thing.
Here are a few people that have lived in an orphanage, lived in foster care, adopted by a step parent, or been adopted. They became famous. It is not about where you come from but about who you become!
