Building Hope for a Brighter Future
*To double your impact, an Agape adoptive family, Owen Gehrett and Jean Lee, have offered to match every donation made up to $25K before December 31st.*
Hope. It’s perhaps the most complicated human emotion – it often has no basis in the reality of today but it’s what sustains us through the hard times. In the last nearly two years sometimes it’s the only thing that gets me through the day – hope that tomorrow will be better.
We all suffer, in big ways and small, in this pandemic. My suffering, I can handle. What keeps me up at night, but fuels my days, is the over forty Agape waiting children in China, and the parents who hope to adopt them.
All of these children have special needs. Their names and needs repeat in my head all day. Jing waits not just for her family but also for heart surgery. Yu needs time sensitive medication. Xuan may age out. The list goes on and on.
These children are just a small portion of the nearly 500 matched waiting children in China, and families here at home just like them. Stuck. Stalled. Waiting. Afraid.
And those 500 children are just a small portion of the 3500 children who remain on China’s waiting children list. Agape Adoptions will continue to work tirelessly for all children who are in need of families, in China and around the world.
Please join us in hoping for a better tomorrow by donating today.
