Thanksgiving week

Thank you.

Thank you to the families who are considering adoption.

Thank you to the families who have already adopted.

Thank you to the families who are right in the middle of adopting right now.

I can't tell you what a blessing it is to see children finally united with the families that they were meant to be with. It is truly a gift to be a (very) small part of such life changing acts. It is humbling, and I am truly thankful.

He's home! He's home! He's home!!!!!

Fu Yu didn't go to an institution, and instead came home with his family a few weeks ago. Because of them, he gets to get an education and feel loved. We're so happy for him and the rest of his family members.

She found her family! And we're hoping she's with them permanently in December...

As always, we're so happy to hear this kind of news!

Oliver from the Ukraine

Oliver, who is 5 1/2 years old, lives in an orphanage in the Ukraine. We think he may have Diastrophic Dysplasia. He does not get out of his crib much at all and it has been reported that the orphanage workers lean over a crib to feed him instead of holding him. LPA has a wonderful family who is advocating for him, and has offered a matching grant to anyone who gives to his grant, up to $2000 until August 19th. So, if you were thinking about helping, here is a great way to do that! Click on the link below and it will tell you more about the grant. We would love to find his family soon, because he is at risk of going to an institution if not.

Check out this post to find out how you can help.
