The number of orphaned children in our world is staggering and yet for most, an adoptive family is a far away dream they will never realize. GGAM believes that God himself has authored adoption as a very physical model of what He does for us spiritually when we place our faith in His son, Jesus. We become His children and are no longer spiritually orphaned! We believe that the adoption of an orphaned child by a Christian family helps nurture them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Many times the biggest obstacle between an orphaned child and an adoptive family is finances. God’s Grace Adoption Ministry is a non-profit Christian ministry founded to assist families with the financial burden of adoption. An adoption can cost between 20 and 50 thousand dollars! While the Bible calls all believers in James 1:27 to “visit the fatherless”, not all families are called to adopt. Many support in other ways, including financially and in prayer. Thank you for your financial gift to GGAM in 2014.
In 2014, GGAM received 171 applications for financial assistance for adoption and we were able to commit matching grants of $2500.00 to 24 of those families! These funds would not have been made possible without your generous gift. Thank you for being apart of helping orphaned children come home to their Forever Families!!
GGAM has also welcomed 4 new members to the team in 2014. Myself, Sarah Boone as the Executive Director, Joel Boone as the Board Chair and Jared and Alicia VanDuyn, both as board members.
