Adoptions are how we match sponsors to an individual or family. You don't need to spend an egregious amount of money to make a difference. The average adopter will spend $25 on an individual and that stacks proportionally once you consider families of greater size.
We believe anyone can be adopter and make our matchings on a need basis. However, we will happily accommodate an adopter's request, i.e. adopting a family with a military background or special needs.
