Orphans can become anything if given the chance!

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!
