Adopt Us Kids Child Search

When I was in my 20s, I had the opportunity to live overseas for a year, and I spent a good amount of time that year visiting children's hospitals and orphanages. That time really affected me, and I think often of those kids and all the others around the world who are in need of loving homes. I'm not sure where God is going to lead my family in terms of adoption, but I know there are so many families that do want to adopt and open their home up to a child in need.

For families interested in fostering or adopting a child here in the US, where the need is great, there's a great website that can be used to help. It's called Adopt Us Kids, and is a website that is funded by the Children's Bureau of the Administration for Children and Families. The site is a national  photo listing website with photos and information about children in foster care; you can use this site to search for children in your area who need homes. If you are interested in fostering a child or adopting, please visit Adopt Us Kids.  There are so many kids who need your love.
