Orphaned children deserve to know love.
Without a doubt, this statement is something we hope everyone supports. Instead of just wishing that orphaned children know love, we are inviting you to take action to make this dream come true. This holiday season, our inspiration is “Love in Action”.
This November, please join us in celebrating National Adoption Month!
