Gifts of Hope

At the very core of who we are is a desire and need for connection, belonging, and security first found and experienced within the context of family. For the more than 15 million children who have been orphaned around the world, that foundational relationship has been disrupted.

Yet Show Hope.

The need, the opportunity, and the invitation to “love as we have been loved” has never been greater. So in this season, when we give gifts as a way to express our love and admiration—ultimately remembering the greatest gift of Jesus—we invite you to join us in the work of Show Hope, locking arms with us in changing the world with kindness.

Adoption Aid

The need remains as it did 20 years ago. A barrier between waiting children and families still exists, with the cost of adoption ranging between $25,000 and $50,000.

Yet Show Hope.

In a few short years, we will award our 10,000th Adoption Aid grant, and this year, we are moving toward that milestone with a 10 percent planned increase in the number of grants awarded versus last year. With a rise in Adoption Aid grant applications over the past year, we are anticipating the needs and stand ready to meet children and families with hope and help—but not without you.

Medical Care

Rising medical costs and access to adequate healthcare can be overwhelming for families, particularly families whose story includes adoption.

Yet Show Hope.

Whether it’s a pre-existing condition or a need that just recently developed, Show Hope’s Medical Care grants financially assist families with medical expenses for their children welcomed home through adoption. While this work is still in its infancy, we eagerly anticipate and plan to award 250 grants per year by 2025. And we are praying you will join us.

Pre+Post Adoption Support

As Mary Beth Chapman once said, parenting is “gloriously hard,” particularly for those on the adoption or foster care journey. The truth is, children impacted by adoption and/or foster care often have unique, sometimes complex needs stemming from trauma, abuse, neglect, or loss.

Yet Show Hope.

In 2008, with an aim to help parents better understand their children’s unique history and needs, Show Hope launched its Pre+Post Adoption Support work, which also equips professionals, churches, and communities in their care for the children entrusted to them. It has been said, “The impacts of Show Hope’s Pre+Post Adoption Support work will be seen for generations to come,” and to continue that impact, we need you by our side.

Student Initiatives

While our greatest prayer and deepest desire is for every child to know the love, security, and permanency of a family, we also acknowledge the reality that we live in a broken world. The needs of children who have been orphaned will not end with our generation.

Yet Show Hope.

When we invest in the students of 2023, we care for the orphans of 2053. The Student Initiatives work of Show Hope has carried that profound truth since our first Student Global Training Trips and now with Pause Campaign. It’s a work that is going on below the surface, deepening roots to ensure the shade of Show Hope’s tree continues to bless children and families years from now. Will you cultivate it with us?
