I want to thank you guys for viewing my website.  This is a site to give information on how you can start your adoption, information on how you can finance your adoption, and to let you know about the orphan care ministry I love so much.  I titled my ministry "God's Little Treasures" because that is what orphans are.  Knowing the need that orphans have is what makes adoption so great.  When you see the statistics I put in my last journal, you can see the need for adoption.  There is just not enough voices out there for the orphans.  We need to get the word out.  The more people we get involved in this, the more we help the orphans.  They NEED our HELP!!!!  What will you do to help the orphans?



 A fictional story I wrote about a child that was in foster care.
