Adoption

"Religion that 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

Parkway is committed to helping support adoption by providing resources through special offerings to the James 1:27 Adoption Fund. The fund was started in 2007 to help Parkway families with adoption cost and to support their efforts to build families.


CHILDREN

According to UNICEF there are 153 Million orphans world-wide. Every day over 5,700 children become orphans. 


Countries

Our precious Parkway Children have come from the U.S., Russia, China, Guatemala, and more. 


COST

Costs vary, but adoption expenses can add up to over $20,000, including agency fees, travel expenses, and home study costs.
