Open Door Adoption Agency has been bringing children home since 1987. Your giving can help us do even more.

The Need

UNICEF statistics report an estimated 153 million orphans in the world. In reality, the majority of these are children who have lost one parent but are living in homes with family. Not counted are the estimated 2-8+ million children living in institutions, or the children living on the streets, exploited for labor, victims of child trafficking or drafted as child soldiers. Among these are 424,000+ children living in the U.S. foster care system. In Georgia alone, there are over 11,000 children in foster care, with around 350 available for adoption on any given day.

While the potential negative impacts are many and widespread, your giving can help us expand our International Programs to get more kids off the streets and into loving families. You can help us approve and train more foster families, so children in the foster system can receive the attention and care they need, preventing or even reversing many of the long-term negative outcomes these children might otherwise face. Finally, you can help us make a difference in the lives of birth mothers who are choosing life for their children.
