Congratulations to the Groenewegen family from Canada on the adoption of our little Precious (Prea). We can see how happy she already is with her forever Mommy and Daddy. Tim and Wendy, we know that Precious will bring joy and excitement into your family and will bless you with her presence as much as she has blessed so many people at Hope House. God bless you all.

All those who attended had a wonderful time and it was a great idea.

We apologise for the lack of updates on this blog, but this post should bring you up-to-date. There have been no adoptions since May 2016, either local or inter-country.
