My wife and I are pretty involved in the adoption community for our area, and one question we get all the time is:
“I want to support adoption, we don’t feel “called” to adopt, but we want to support families that do, what can we do?”
Well, I have a simple way you can do that. Consider supporting me as I run a 1/2 marathon with Team Orphans. Team Orphans is a great agency that partners with Britney’s Hope to provide families who are adopting grants, in order to bring their children home. What I love about Britney’s hope is that 1. there is a focus on kids with special needs, being a father of 2 children with special needs this automatically jumped out to me. 2. There is a focus on not just getting a child into a physical house, but there is a focus on getting a child to their forever home, by sharing the knowledge of the gospel with them.
This is a great cause – Adoption is expensive in the last 2 years we have spent, borrowed, been given, been loaned over $50K and the average adoption runs in between $17-35k; a cost most families don’t have just sitting on the side. This is a way you can help some other families bring their kids home and spread the gospel.
So please consider sponsoring me. I’m trying to raise $500 USD for other families who are adopting, but would love to see us bring in more than that.
