Our family is currently using OFA to help bring our daughter home from DRC. Their humanitarian efforts in DRC, as well as their assistance to us in securing documents and legal counsel has been priceless. They are an organization that is in this for the children of Congo. They have helped us learn more about our daughter country of birth. They have have raised our awareness with details of the how the orphanages work in DRC, and encouraged us to raise awareness of those around us.

My wife and I adopted a son nearly two years ago. He and his mother were refugees travelling to safety when his mother died in central Democratic of Congo. There was no way for anyone to care for him. OFA arrainged to fly him to Kinshasa where he was cared for until we could travel to pick him up. There is no doubt that OFA saved my son's life. I was so impressed with this organization that I asked to join the board. In the last two years we have seen OFA feed, foster and adopt dozens of children to loving homes. My wife and I are now in the process of adopting two more boys from DRC.

We need to continue to expand our services to more children in DRC. Additional funds will make this possible.

My family and I used Our Family Adoptions to facilitate the adoption of our youngest child. Though this experience, we have been blessed to be a part of the OFA family. OFA is a network of volunteers working to bless the lives or disadvantaged orphans in the Democratic Republic of Congo. To date, they have delivered thousands of pound of formula, completed building projects, provided clean water, clothing, school scholarships and medication to hundreds of children.

We are so proud to be associated with this wonderful organization and would recommend them to anyone.

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

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

add more oermanent staffing to help with the overload of business

Our work with Our Family Adoptions has changed our lives. This organization has opened our eyes to the beautiful, yet troubled country of the Democratic Republic of Congo. We have experienced firsthand the transformational power of meeting peoples basic needs. This organization is completely run by volunteers with integrity and passion for the needs of the DRC.
