2016 marks All God’s Children International’s 25th year of changing lives around the world! As we prepare to celebrate this milestone with our Celebration of Hope Dinner and Auction, we can’t help but reflect on all God has accomplished through AGCI over the last 25 years!
AGCI’s story started with one family, the Beazely family, and their quest to adopt their daughter, Hannah. With the adoption of Hannah in 1991, AGCI was born.
What began as a call to care for one child grew into a mission to make a difference for orphans and families around the world through adoption and family preservation efforts.
But then God asked us to do more. He asked us to be there for children in their most desperate and darkest moments. He asked us to give every child the love and hope they deserve. We begin to make this prayer a reality in 1997, when we opened our first Hannah’s Hope in Romania, the country where our first adoptee, Hannah, was born. Through our Hannah’s Hope model of family-like care, we’ve worked to change the way orphans receive care worldwide.
Today, we have Hannah’s Hope homes in Burundi, Ethiopia, Haiti, Nepal, and Taiwan and we’re now working to partner with existing institutions around the world in an effort to make elevated, sustainable care a reality for every orphan. With these homes, we’re able to give every orphan in our care the love and hope they so desperately need.
Together, we’ve reached further and watched God’s plan to make family a reality for every orphan unfold through our elevated, loving orphan care, family reunification, adoption, and aging out programs. Beginning with our first family united 25 years ago, the AGCI family has since blossomed to include over 2,920 adoptive families. Over the last 25 years, our work has reached 23 countries, we’ve served over 7,421 children through our Hannah’s Hope homes, and we’ve touched over 300,000 families and communities through the work that He put on our hearts.
We feel so blessed to walk this journey. We can’t wait to see what God has planned for the next 25 years!
We want you to celebrate with us! Join us for A Celebration of Hope on May 14th in Vancouver, WA! All proceeds from our dinner and auction will benefit our Hannah’s Hope homes around the world.
