ADOPT A CHILD
Organizations and ministries around the world care for orphans as well as abandoned children, street kids, and other vulnerable children at risk of going hungry. One of the greatest expenses to caring for these children is food, something they often went to bed without eating.

We will be glad to assist you in any way we can, and hope that we will be able to help you with your efforts to adopt a child in the near future!
Some birth parents, though they may feel incapable of raising a child at the time or choose not to for whatever reason, still wish to maintain some form of contact with the biological child or the biological child’s adoptive family. In an open adoption, the birth parents will choose the family that they would like to place their biological child with.
This may involve a series of interviews conducted by the birth parents. An open adoption involves a commitment by both families to the maintaining of a relationship between the biological family and the adoptive family. This contact may range from sharing of pictures and letters to regular contact.
Advantages of Open Adoption include that the adopted child will feel that the biological family did not abandon him. The child will feel that the adoption was done for the right reasons, not because of rejection. There will not be shame surrounding the fact that the child is adopted. Also, the child will have access to health records and family history from the biological parents.
Disadvantages may include that there may be a tug-of-war between the sets of parents, making the child feel like he has to choose or feel uncomfortable. It requires a lot of patience and understanding on the part of the adoptive family to allow the biological family into their lives. There are benefits to the birth parents, as they can rest assured that their child is being well cared for and they can watch their child grow up.
Semi-open adoption is different from an open adoption because the contact is limited. The adoptive parents may send pictures or keep in contact with the biological parent through the agency, but there would not be regular contact between parties.
Advantages of the semi-open adoption are again that the child knows something about the biological parents so he will not feel abandoned or rejected. Additionally, the child will have access to health records and family history. Disadvantages may include that the relationship is limited and the adopted child may wish to have more contact with the biological family.
In a closed adoption, the birth parents have little or no choice about the adoptive parents of their child. They will likely not have any information about their child, where the child lives, or anything about the adoptive parents. The adoptive parents, as well, will not have much or any information about the biological family.
Advantages of a closed adoption are that the adoptive parents become the parents and will not have interference from the biological parents. Disadvantages include that the child (if he/she is older) may feel abandoned and rejected by the biological parents and may wish to have information about his parents and meet his parents. Also the child may not have any access to family and medical history.
