****  Please join me in praying for the orphans of Russia and for the families who are planning to or are in the process of adopting from Russia.  Also pray that God will change the heart of Russia's government especially Putin's heart.  The miracle we need here can only come from God.  He is the only reason a change can be made.  It is hard to understand why this is happening, but we must remember that God knows and will take care of all involved.  I wish I could do more for the children and families, but right now all I can do is pray!

Welcome!  If you are interested in adoption or just have a heart for the orphans, then this is the site for you!  I have information on ways to start the research on adoption and also share with you about Orphans!

This has been my heart for about 10 years now.  God used my love of children and Steven Curtis Chapman's experience to bring this all about.  I can not remember the time that the love of children came into my heart.  God gave me this love and I never knew until now what He was doing in my heart through that love.  If you were looking for me in church, you found me in the nursery playing with the babies.  If there were children or babies around, you knew where to find me! Most of my jobs I have had have been working with children.  I had always looked forward to having kids of my own.  I have not had any of my own yet, but I know that God has a plan and will for my life.  If it were for me to have or adopt a child one day then that would be great, but if not, I will be fine with that.  I only want to be in His will.

Well, around 10 years ago, Steven Curtis Chapman was in town and he was speaking about adoption and how he and his wife had just adopted their little girl (Shaohannah) from China.  He gave his testimony about that whole experience and how God had led him to adopt.  Then he told about the organization (Shaohannah's Hope, which eventually became Show Hope) and through that organization, anyone can apply to receive a grant of up to $7,000 to help with their adoption.  People can also donate to the organization and in that way they are helping people to adopt financially.

I was very amazed by all I heard and immediately went home and started researching on adoption.  I researched Domestic and International adoption.  Then, I started researching agencies and grants.  Next came the research on steps to adoption.

After years of doing all of this research, I found countries that were opened to singles and the ones that were not.  I even started viewing videos of orphans that lived overseas and was amazed at what I saw.  It broke my heart to see all they were going through.  God used all of this to place on my heart a love for Adoption/Orphan Care Ministry.

Please comment or e-mail me and let me know what you think of my page and please don't hesitate to ask me anything you would like to know.  Thanks and God bless!
