Feeding the Orphans

When I was 7 years old, I started praying for a sister to add to my 2 brothers. I would sit for hours and watch videos of orphans and read blogs. Then, when I was 10 years old, my parents finally decided to adopt! As we were waiting for my brother and sister to come home from Ghana, we had one picture of them. That picture was of my little sister holding a tiny piece of bread and she had not eaten in days. That picture inspired me to make a difference.

One night we were driving home from my grandparents’ house and Mom wanted to stop and get dinner. The boys were excited, but I refused to eat. I asked Mom if we could buy bread for me instead. She said, “Only if you tell me what is wrong.” I looked at her with tears streaming down my face and said, “WHY SHOULD WE EAT LIKE KINGS AND QUEENS WHEN THEY HAVE NOTHING?”

That night, God told me to design a t-shirt to sell to raise money to provide food, medical supplies, and clean water to the orphans of Africa. I started a blog and named it Feeding the Orphans. My goal was to raise $500 and it was exceeded very quickly. I used the money to buy food and supplies for the orphanages and to feed hundreds of street children when we traveled for my brother and sister’s adoption in September 2010.

Since then, God has continued to break my heart for the orphans and I just want to follow Him. I never thought following Him would lead this to be a nonprofit organization.

Please join my family and I on God’s journey to care for the orphans of the world.

Help me help the orphans. I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you. John 14:18

My mission is to feed the orphans, drill a well in villages that need water, feed the street children, and find monthly sponsors for the children of Ghana.
