Are You Considering Child Adoption

If you are thinking about child adoption but don’t think it’s quite right for you, then consider child sponsorship instead.

Unfortunately, child adoption often requires waiting for years and can cost thousands of dollars. Not everyone has the time or the financial ability to pursue child adoption.

A Child Adoption Alternative

A lot of children are not even available for child adoption and yet they still need our help. The children that cannot be adopted can still be helped by sponsoring a child through Compassion.

Compassion isn’t a child adoption agency; instead we provide a connection between a loving sponsor and a child in a developing country who is in great need. Your child sponsorship support provides:

  • food and clean water as needed
  • educational opportunities
  • health care (regular health checkups, immunizations, medicine and more)
  • the opportunity to experience God’s love and learn about Jesus
  • an intimate relationship with you through letters, photos and prayers.

You can even visit your sponsored child in his or her native country!

You will be linked to one child who knows your name, who will write to you and cherish the idea that you care.

If you are contemplating child adoption but aren’t able to adopt a child, please consider sponsoring a child instead. The cost is $38 a month, which is much less than the cost to adopt a child.

Take The Next Step

It is quick and easy. You’ll receive your child’s photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 15 days.

Allow God to work through you. Sponsor a child today!
