The orphan crisis can be shocking to learn about, especially as a child.

Mallory Crain remembers being broken-hearted as a kid when she heard that there were children in the world who didn’t have a family. She knew she needed to do something about it.


Mallory has lived with the desire to adopt since she was a child, and her husband, Joshua, has felt equally called to care for waiting children.  As soon as they were married, they began the adoption process.

But like so many others who go through an adoption journey, it wasn’t easy. The wait has been long, and things seem to move slowly.

The Crain family has waited. Mallory and Joshua have experienced seven long years of closed doors. In the waiting, they have felt God calling—drawing them nearer to his heart for the fatherless and his perfect timing.

Seven years and two children later, the door was finally thrown wide open. The Crain family is eagerly waiting to welcome home their daughter from Haiti. Through this process, Joshua and Mallory have learned to love each other more deeply, to embrace and love a child who is still thousands of miles away, and to cling to the Lord in the process.  





You can support families, like the Crain family, and help more children come to know the love of a family. You can see where hope goes!
