Enjoy this update from our Bolivia team–
Since its inception in 2013, Fundación Esperanza has grown from a single home with 18 babies and toddlers to 4 homes with 60 children in their care. While this growth has helped more children in Bolivia see God’s love through the homes, caregivers, missionaries, and volunteers, we would rather see orphanages shrink than grow!
In November 2015 Fundación Esperanza was blessed with its first ever adoption when Sofia was united with her forever family. After the first adoption, God continued to bless Fundación Esperanza with 4 more adoptions!
Here is our latest adoption story:
Andrea came to the baby house of Fundación Esperanza in March of 2014 at the age of 6 months old. She was abandoned by her mother with information of a father. The social worker of Fundación Esperanza began working to identify extended family members for a possible reunification but was unsuccessful in this endeavor. The process began to make Andrea “adoptable,” and after months of paper work and legal proceedings she was deemed eligible for adoption and assigned to a family. We are so thrilled that Andrea is now with a loving mother and father and will grow up in a nurturing environment. At the moment, Andrea is an only child in her new family.
In addition to these adoptions, 3 children were recently reunited with their biological families. And there are 2 more adoptions currently in progress! It is amazing seeing God work by blessing these families with children, and blessing the children with families!
God sets the lonely in families.
