Our family is always looking for ways to make the world a better place!  I will sometimes share some of my favorite charities here.  We love to support charities that help aid in the orphan crisis and promote adoption awareness, prevention, and normalization.  Charity can be big or small, but we feel it is important to teach our children to look outside of ourselves and find ways to help as much as we can.  We feel charity is our greatest calling.  If you would like to guest post about your charity please contact us about guest blogging!  At least one Sunday a month we like to feature guest bloggers from charities – we like to focus on charities that help specifically with vulnerable children – in the United States and abroad.  Please contact us through the link provided above!
