Welcome to our general adoption blog. We use our blog to give updates about international adoption and tell you what is happening with our families and our programs. Some blog entries are more “specialized” in nature and so these categories can be found dispersed throughout our site. For example, as you are vising a page that tells you about adoption requirements, you might find blog entries written over the years about adoption requirements. Ultimately, these categories are implemented throughout our site. This page shows all the blogs, so the topics can vary widely. We hope that you can quickly glance through titles, photos and excerpts to find what interests you. Though we share certain aspects of what might be happening with our families’ adoptions, we protect their personal privacy. We only share what they want us to. Often times our families are the ones giving us entry topics or providing their own so we can use their experience to tell others about international adoption. As we update our adoption blog, we feel humbled to be able to watch God’s miracles taking with His families, though our agency. We hope that the readers will join us in prayer for our families in process.
If you’ve been following our adoption blog and would like to learn more, please contact us by filling out our form. We’d be happy to chat with you or perhaps put you in touch with some of the people you’ve been reading about so they can share more details about their international adoption.
We hope you enjoy our adoption blog!
