The Bible calls all of us to care for orphans; if adoption is not the way that you are called to help, know that there are ways for you to be involved no matter your age, where you are in life, or how much money you make. No one person can accomplish this goal alone. Step up to the challenge and get involved today.


Have you been thinking about adopting from foster care to offer a child the love of a permanent family?  The Suitcase Movement can help you find your child.  Call Kimberly Smith, Program Coordinator, for more information or to start an adoption of a child from foster care. 


The Suitcase Movement is not possible without generous donations.  One hundred percent of your donation goes directly to assisting families who are adopting.  Many people have the desire to adopt, but lack the necessary funds.  It is our mission to ensure that everyone who has the desire to adopt is given the necessary resources to make it happen.  A financial contribution can be made online at or by mail to:  Suitcase Movement, PO Box 4, Thomasville, GA 31799.


Churches are the hands and feet of Christ. We need your help in spreading the word about what we are doing in your churches. Become an ambassador for the Suitcase Movement by educating people in your church on how they can be involved. Contact us at (229) 228-6339 to request more information and brochures that can be distributed in your church.


Want to have an impact on a child’s life, but not ready to be a parent?  You can become involved by becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister to Georgia foster children in your area.  These children need positive role models and dependability in their lives. Mentoring forms these crucial relationships and can have a positive impact for the rest of their lives.  Contact Kimberly Smith for more information or to start the matching process.


We are an adoption agency comprised of foster care experts, adoption professionals and people passionate about cultivating change in the way we think about foster care.  The Suitcase Movement is a branch of An Open Door Adoption Agency, an established private, Christian adoption agency that has been facilitating adoptions for over 33 years.


Our purpose is to be a useful resource helping families take the first step in the adoption process. We are here to equip adoptive families with the necessary information and financial assistance to make adoption as simple and satisfying as possible


We want to build the bridge between what you want to do and what you can do.  It is our desire to be the voice of the voiceless and advocate on their behalf.  We work hand-in-hand with families and DFCS to help streamline the process and help foster children become “just children” as soon as possible.
