Twenty Adoptions from Foster Care
Because we believe so strongly that every child born deserves a permanent family of his or her own, we of course celebrate each and every time a child in one of our programs is adopted. We just had to share the wonderful news that since the beginning of 2016, twenty children from our foster care program have been adopted, both internationally and domestically! We wish a fond farewell to seven boys and thirteen girls who are now precious sons or daughters.
Three children who were previously in our foster care programs were also adopted: Pearl, Grant, and Luis.
Seven of these adoptions were domestic…nearly one-third! It is truly something to celebrate that an increasing number of families in China are choosing domestic adoption, and it’s heartwarming to think of so many orphaned children getting the opportunity to grow up in their own culture, loved and treasured in the arms of their family.
