Adoption and Foster Care

“When we adopt- and when we encourage a culture of adoption in our churches and communities – we’re picturing something that’s true about our God. We, like Jesus, see what our Father is doing and do likewise (John 5:19). And what our Father is doing, it turns out, is fighting for orphans to make them sons and daughters.” – Russell Moore

“Provide justice for the needy and the fatherless; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.” – Psalm 82:3

“Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” – James 1:27

How We Can Help

Long Hollow partners with Lifesong for Orphans because we believe that that our church should come alongside families and help with the financial barrier  of adoption.

Through Lifesong, we can provide financial support, fundraising tools, and encouragement before, during, and after adoption.
