In 2014 Embrace the Orphan, Inc began the journey into foster care and adoption by starting a support group and providing some resources to adoptive and foster parents. We since that time we have provided a free conference for people to earn training hrs to keep their foster parent license.
“Religion the God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27 (NIV)
