Since 2016, we’ve been privileged to partner with Drops of Grace. Drops of Grace exists to reach orphaned and vulnerable children in the Kikinene Village, about 88 miles southwest of Kampala, Uganda’s capital. According to UNICEF, Uganda has one of the youngest populations in the world, with 44% of its citizens under 14 years of age. But unfortunately, nearly half of Ugandan households experience multi-dimensional poverty—meaning they have little to no access to money, education, or infrastructure services. And many of the most vulnerable children know nothing of the Gospel or the love of Chr ..read more

3 Unexpected Side Effects of Being Adopted: My Story
Lifesong Blog
by Trisha Priebe
6d ago
As a little girl—two days before Christmas—I received a family. Being adopted, I’ve spent the last 30+ years teasing my parents that I was the best Christmas gift they ever got, though in reality, I consider it entirely the other way around. But in case your experience with adoption hasn’t been as positive, let me say this: Many adoptees (and adoptive families) carry heavy burdens of grief and loss for decades after an adoption process is final. And I have no desire to minimize that reality. However, I believe I have largely escaped the darker side of adoption due to an unwavering acceptance ..read more

Suhas and Abby with their daughter, Katelyn-Joy. Suhas and Abby waited an unexpected ten years to adopt their daughter. Due to circumstances outside of their control, they had to change adoption agencies and countries halfway through the adoption process. By that point, they had already raised several thousand dollars through Lifesong. When they started the adoption process again later, they assumed the money they raised would no longer be available. However, the funds were still there, and they could continue the journey of faith God had called them to take. Suhas and Abby share— “Lifesong ..read more

by Trisha Priebe
1w ago
In Ethiopia, there are more than 5.6 million orphans. These children whose names and stories matter deeply to God often become trapped in a cycle of institutional care. Like you, we believe children belong in families. More specifically, children belong in their families of origin. But where that isn’t possible because of death or abandonment, we still believe God wants children to grow up in loving, committed families. Unfortunately, there isn’t yet a strong culture of domestic foster care or adoption in Ethiopia. But God, Who is committed to fatherless children, is at work in the hearts of ..read more
