Walter and Jane Gilbert, CEO and Director of Domestic Adoptions

talk about their heart for adoption

and how it changes lives

 

 

 

Since our beginning, An Open Door has felt a strong call to provide orphan children with loving, Christian homes. 

 

There are more than 153 million children in the world who have lost at least one parent, and there are 8 million children living in orphanages -- not counting those also living on the streets or trafficked as slaves. Every year, there are also thousands of birth parents who face the incredibly hard decision to place their child with the best family possible. What a humbling privilege it is to be there for these children and families. 

 

Since 1987, An Open Door Adoption Agency, Inc. has placed over 2,500 children. These include 1,400+ children from the state of Georgia and 700+ international orphans. Each of these precious lives represents many more people touched by adoption -- from the birth parents to the adoptive couple to the children themselves. What a great privilege it is to be there for them to complete their desire for a family.
