HIS KIDS TOO INC
October 11, 2013

My husband and I wanted to adopt from the Ukraine. We found Cornerstone Adoption and this wonderful organization. We worked through the paperwork and after almost 2 years my patience had worn quite thin with the paperwork and bureaucratic issues. My husband managed to scrape together the additional funds to send me to work with this group for 2 weeks before our adoption was complete. Not only was I able to aide children in 25 different orphanages but I was able to experience and witness the life our future children lived from day to day. Eating the same food, living and working with some of the older teens as we did the bible camp and of course helping to deliver food, clothing, shoes and bible stories to shelters and orphanages. It changed my perspective and helped me to be more patient with our children when they were frustrated in their new home and world. All children are the same around the world – they only want attention, love and acceptance from adults. Language doesn’t matter, culture doesn’t matter – we are all God’s children and want to feel special and loved by everyone. This organization is trying to make a difference. The skills they are teaching the youth are basic life skills that we often take for granted because our parents or grandparents taught them to us. These children have few role models that are willing to spend the time to teach them these things. If you’re not able to go won’t you consider helping others to go and model God’s love, responsibility and acceptance to these children and youth?

Ways to make it better...

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

The only change would be to have an endless supply of money and people who are willing to go and work to aid children widows and those who are sick. The organization is fine as it is to my knowledge.
