The holidays are a perfect chance to spend time with family and friends.
They’re also a reminder of those who may be less fortunate than yourself.
One local organization is working to provide adoption assistance grants so families can complete adoptions, giving children in need of families a permanent home and a chance to thrive.
Gift of Adoption CEO Pam Devereux joined WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes to talk about the volunteer-driven charity.
Brandon Lemons, an adoptive father and Senior Pastor for Friedens Evangelical Church, also shared his story.
Lemons turned to Gift of Adoption to help complete the adoption of his six-year old son Mikias from Ethiopia in 2011 and also for the adoption of his four-year old daughter Tehila from China in 2013.
