”If you can’t hold children in your arms, please hold them in your heart.”
Mother Clara Hale
Isn’t she just the cutest little thing? This is my sister’s adopted daughter via Trinity Global Development, a group their church is affiliated with. Dar gives a set amount of money each month and can send Brenda (I LOVE her name) gifts as well.
And here is my little adopted daughter! I met her through World Vision. Before her was a young boy who has now grown old enough to exit the program. I send $30 a month and can send small gifts such as stickers, a bracelet, anything that will fit in a 5×7 envelope.
My friend, Crystal, has at least one child she has adopted through World Vision, and my friend, Sarah, has a child she has adopted through the organization Only Believe Ministries. It is a local organization that is in the process of raising the money for an orphanage. A great group to plug into!!
These are just three organizations. There are many. We can help children in our own homeland to those far away.
I am blessed. And I want to give it back.
What about you?

This is an amazing thing to do! I’ve thought of doing it, but never took the plunge. Just think of the joy a little child like that receives when they receive that small envelope and t heir expectations whn they open it! I can only imagine the joy it brings to them. Do you hear from them?
Are you able to write back and forth?
We occasionally write, but not often. Darla has more interaction than with World Vision, and I believe the Galatia-based Only Believe Ministries has more interaction as well. I get an update and pic of my little girl once a year plus little booklets with stickers to add a note on from World Vision several times a year that I send a little note. Occasionally I will put stickers or some other little something in there as well. It gives me a great feeling to pray for her and know that I am helping a specific little person in another country. I already help them here as well. Wouldn’t want to do for one that I don’t do for another, so to speak. 🙂
Maddy and I both sponsor children through World Vision. I love the program because when you help one child, World Vision can help the whole village.
good point, Paula. I forgot to say that!!
