Today is our 17th Anniversary! We officially incorporated on May 18th 1994. Looking back over the years, itâ€™s clear that God has blessed our work and provided us with wonderful staff and adoptive families. When we first began, we were simply helping families gather paperwork for China; we never imagined that weâ€™d have helped place over 3,000 children from all around the world and be licensed to perform social services in 21 different states! God has done exceedingly, abundantly more than we could have ever hoped or imagined.
I also want to take this opportunity to mention how great it was to meet many of our families at the Christian Alliance For Orphansâ€™ annual Summit which was held in Louisville, KY this past week. I am already looking forward to next yearâ€™s Summit in Southern California â€“ and I hope many of you will be able to join us.
I hope many of you saw that our agency has officially become members of the Evangelical Council on Financial Accountability. We are proud of this membership as a way to show our commitment to financial integrity and we hope that our adoptive families will see that we are committed to financial accountability and transparency.
