Millions of children all over the world are longing for the love of a forever family, but the current cost of adoption can be tens of thousands of dollars. Due to this financial barrier, some families who long to adopt can’t afford it. Show Hope’s Adoption Aid program helps make the process more affordable by providing financial grants to families pursuing adoption. On average, adoption can cost $25,000+. To learn why it is so costly, check out 5 Reasons Adoption Can Be Expensive.
Waiting children need our help. Although not everyone is called to adopt, everyone can do something!
3 Reasons Why Adoption Aid is Important:
1. It engages the church in living out what the Bible calls us to in James 1:27 “Pure and lasting worship in the eyes of God means that we must care for orphans.”
2. It allows us to be the hands and feet of Christ by answering the needs of waiting children and their families. As adoptive families reach the end of their personal finances, God often chooses to provide for their needs through Adoption Aid grants. By being a part of this funding, you are taking part in God’s active work to provide for these needs. To date, we have seen thousands of children enter the love of a forever family as God continues to work through the generosity of Show Hope’s donors and sponsors.
3. Adoption Aid allows each of us to press in to a greater degree as we walk alongside adoptive families to bring home their child. Even if you are not called to adopt yourself, the encouragement provided to adoptive families through receiving an Adoption Aid grant cannot be underestimated. Not everyone is called to adopt, but everyone can do something.
Show Hope’s Adoption Aid program builds a bridge of hope that allows families to welcome children into their homes. Show Hope receives approximately 1,000 applications every year from families who long to adopt, but need financial assistance to do so. Unfortunately, due to a lack of funding to match this great need, Show Hope must turn away more than 50% of all qualified Adoption Aid applications. By partnering with Show Hope, YOU can help overcome this financial barrier and bring more waiting children home to their forever family!
By donating to Show Hope’s Adoption Aid program, you can answer God’s call to care for orphans in distress. Not everyone is called to adopt, but everyone can do something. Jesus said, “to whom much is given, much is expected” (Luke 12:48). Be a part of the miracle of adoption!
