In 2004 I was approached to host a little boy from Haiti while he was here in the US for medical treatment for 6 weeks. When he came for eye surgery it became apparant that his eye would have to be removed and a prosthesis placed. He had a myraid of other medical conditions and the orphanage he came from asked he not be returned to Haiti because he could not get treatment there or maintain his prosthesis. He had become part of our little family and I could not bear to return him somewhere that would ostracize him. Since I had not been planning to adopt I had no funding to make this happen. We held bake sales, community read alouds, Haitian awareness events, carnivals, news stories, and more to help raise what money was needed. Someone at my home study agency recommended Brittanys Hope to me and I applied for a grant. I got $5000! Wow what an amazing gift to both of us. After many tears we gratefully accepted their offer and used to money to continue legalizing and secure his future here in the United States. He is now 12 years old and a 6th grader at our local junior high. He enjoys martial arts, music, friends, and school. He is thriving and thanks to Brittanys Hope he has a great future ahead of him! We are ever so grateful to them and hope someday to be able to pay this gift forward. thank you.

I sponsor a child from the House of Love in Vietnam. I found her on the Brittany's Hope website and was captivated by her big sad eyes. I love that 100% of my donation goes directly to her care & support with no administrative fees. I love that I can purchase some personal things for her: clothes & barbie dolls and the foundation will forward them to her. They send me pictures & cards. That makes the sponsorship personal. I'm kept aware of all the happenings at the House of Love through email & mail. I'm considering sponsoring more children. I love what the Foundation stands for.

We are a blessed receipt family. Our five year old daughter received a $5,000. grant. She has Spina Bifida. We would not have been able to adopt her if it were not for Brittany's Hope.

Brittany's Hope Foundation has a generous grant program that helps adoptive parents overcome the financial struggles in adopting a child with special needs. We've partnered with them for over 5 years. Through their assistance, children that were waiting years for a family were matched and permanently placed. We love working with their kind and dedicated staff. They are an amazing organization!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

finding homes for children abroad that have a medical need, are school-aged, or a part of a sibling group. They had a very generous grant of $10000 assigned to a young boy that was blind and waiting for over 5 years for a family. The large grant allowed the family to travel to the country and help the child transition to his new home.

not make changes. The have an efficient system in assigning designated monies to each of their partner agencies. They effectively communicate any changes or concerns that they have. Their original granting program was not working well, and made the decision to change it. It is working very well for our agency. More children and families are being served through their new process.

We have been involved with Brittanys Hope for about 8 years now. We most recently sponsored a child in Vietnam. This set up allows for 100% of our donations to go directly to her, her care and education. Not many charities can make that claim and make it happen. Brittanys Hope makes it easy to help and make an impact quickly. My children really love getting the updates and photos of our sponsored child. What a wonderful organization to be involved with and support. God bless the Abel family and all of the dedicated workers and volunteers.

Brittany's Hope was an answered prayer for us. When we first found our son on a waiting list we knew he was ours but had no money to bring him home. Brittany's Hope gave us an amazing grant of $5,000 to help bring home our son.

Not only did Brittany's Hope give us an amaing grant they are
also the nicest people you will ever meet. Three years after bringing him home they still check up on us and send brithday cards.

Brittany's Hopes has an amazing passion for orphans and for the families that step forward to bring the kiddos home.

Thank you Brittany's Hope!!!

God had a plan for our family. That plan was more than we could affortd, but through the support from Brittany's Hope we were able to add our beautiful little Latin firecracker to our family. She has changed our lives so much for the better. Brittany's Hope was their in the the beginning and have been there throughout the past 3 1/2 years as well. Thank you Brittany's Hope for being a part of the plan God had for our family.

Brittany's Hope was KEY in our family bringing home our precious miracle, Ezekiel, a 2 year old child from The Philippines who has Down Syndrome and congenital heart disease. Without the grant from Brittany's Hope, Ezekiel's adoption would not have been possible. We are so grateful that an organization like this exists. We can not imagine our lives without Ezekiel. He is truly a gift from God. Thank you, Brittany's Hope!!!!!!

I am both a board member and a recipient parent. I have had and continue to have positive experiences with Brittany's Hope. Without this foundation our family would not include our daughter. The support of this foundatin allowed us to adopt a beautiful 3 year old who has blossomed into an active, bright, loving 8 year old. The staff and fellow board members are very dedicated to the families and children that are served. It is wonderful to see that positive changes can be made in the world, especially for children.

Our family is incredibly grateful for the wonderful support we have received in the adoption of our daughter. The financial strain of adoption can be enough to dissuade many families from taking the leap to bring a child in need home. Brittany's Hope has a profound effect on the family adopting. The support they give is not only financial. They are encouraging, emotionally supportive and truly excited about the gift they are giving to children.

I have been very impressed by the professionalism of the Brittany's Hope staff. They are efficient in their responsiveness, effective in their communication and thorough in their paperwork.

We will be traveling to adopt our new daughter soon. We look forward to sharing in her future which is made possible, in part, by the loving support we have received from Brittany's Hope!
