Adoption and Orphan Care
At Focus on the Family, we believe every child deserves to know the love of a family. Through our Wait No More events, we’re raising awareness of and recruiting adoptive families for children and youth in foster care. Recognizing the challenges adoptive families can face, we also provide best-in-class post-placement resources for adoptive families. And while not every family is called to adopt, as Christians, we’re all called to care for orphans.
