We were able to help 8360 families adopt internationally, now we see our primary mission to help support adoptive families as EverAfter Friends. For the last several years, adoption has mostly been limited to children with special needs. Some of the world’s greatest families saw the need, heard the call, and answered with their own lifetime commitment to adopt, love and care for these children. The EverAfter Program mission is to be there for them when needed. Children’s Hope remains committed to helping our adoptees and adoptive families where and when they need us.
We work in close association with a wonderful organization called “Our Father’s Diadem” founded by an adoptive family, Katie and Craig Hurst, who adopted three children with special needs from China, two of them born blind. They bring real experience and understanding of the struggles families face, and they are able to identify them and design ways to give families the right help at the right time.
Children’s Hope has a great community of adoptive families who may not be able to adopt, but still have hearts that beat for the special-needs children cared for by very special forever families. Together we can make their load lighter.
You can help, too.
We welcome suggestions to expand this program to include needs you might have. Are you dealing with issues of growing up adopted? Birth parent search? Do you need help with visiting the adopting country? Are there unresolved emotional issues surrounding life as you find it?
Please join us in this new journey to help families and children! You can also help by donating to needy families through the EverAfter Fund, or volunteering your time by letting us know about families in need!
