Navigating the various avenues of adoption requires diligence, prayer, and support. At Show Hope, we aim to provide adoptive families with resources and information to help make their transition as smooth as possible! Here are three useful resources for your adoption journey:
This website is a one-stop site for all things related to the adoption process. The URL is a literal account of the site’s purpose — instructing individuals and families how to manage the adoption process. The Adoption Guide is a clear and concise page devoted to providing necessary introductory information to families looking to adopt. You can read about the different types of adoption that are available and even begin the search for an agency that would be right for you. The site offers helpful articles, checklists, and additional resources for adoption. Click here to read real stories of families going through the adoption process!
2. Empowered to Connect
Show Hope works closely with Empowered to Connect to help individuals and families become better prepared for connecting with children from hard places. The Empowered to Connect website houses a large library of resources, including a number of lectures, articles, and videos. Show Hope partners with Empowered to Connect to host several Empowered To Connect conferences each year. These two-day conferences are designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders, and professionals better understand how to connect with children and restore hope. The next conference is scheduled for September 18-19 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Click here to read more about these conferences.
3. Adoption Aid Grants
Show Hope provides financial grants to families who are in the adoption process. If you are interested in applying for an Adoption Aid grant, we encourage you to complete an application. All applicants are welcome, but due to limited funding, we sadly cannot award grants to all qualified applicants. Click here to begin the process of applying for a Show Hope Adoption Aid Grant!
