You’re listening to Together by AGCI. I’m Melissa Rush.
Today, we’re chatting with AGCI co-founder Heather Radu alongside her parents, Ron and Jan Beazely. Heather started All God’s Children International in 1991. It’s a story we don’t often hear, an 18 year old young woman who felt so deeply called that she dropped everything to travel to Eastern Europe and serve. Little did she know, her obedience would lead to thousands of lives changed around the world, but first it started with her family. Heather facilitated the adoption of her youngest sister Hannah. And from that first adoption of movement was started and AGCI was born.
Well, thanks for having me. I’m glad you guys are taking the time to, to go back and look at the early beginnings of all God’s children. Obviously those are very special memories for me. And, and, um, it’s exciting to share with you and talk with you about, uh, how all God’s children can. Yeah. Yeah. Well, let’s, let’s get into it. Um, I’d love to just kind of start at the beginning and if you could tell me, you know, when did you become passionate about, about serving kids and families? When did you know that that was something that you had to do? You know, I think when I look back to my earliest memories, it wasn’t, I just knew that, that I was destined to do things different than other kids. I just, I, in high school, I, um, I
was really passionate about being around other people, giving those were things that were important to me. High school, high school, high school was not like the whole idea of clicks and this and that. It didn’t appeal to me. So by the time I got to my junior year of high school, I, um, I went to my parents and I just said, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t do this. I can’t do high school. And, and I, my, my relationship with God was very, very close. And I just really felt that the Lord was saying to me, I have something for you. And so I went to my parents and I had it all researched. And back then, um, there was no internet. So I had gone to a travel store and I’d gotten those like voters travel things, and I cut them all up and showed the different parts of Europe. And, um, I’d, I’d grown up listening to Dory van Vanstone, she’s a close friend of my mom’s and she had smuggled Bibles into Romania. And so I just had my plan. I was like, I want to go to, I want to go to Bible school in Austria that I’m going to travel all summer and then I want to go visit a orphanage and then I want to go, um, I want to go to England in the fall for school. I mean, I just, I just knew and I, Oh my
gosh. I mean, I’m going to turn 50 next year. So, I mean, there’s a lot of reflection as you head into your 50th year of life. Yeah. You know, looking back on that, I just, I do know that it was the Holy spirit just leading, leading my heart because it was so clear. I knew exactly where I was supposed to go. I didn’t know what was going to happen. And so, you know, they had to say yes to their 11th grader getting her GED. And so they did, they did say yes that they, they made me first go see the superintendent of schools. And they said, if he happened to be a church friend of theirs, and he said, if Larry EHRs calls us up and says that you can drop out of school and do this plan, your mom and I are going to give you, uh, our, our blessing on that. So I did, I went and I got all dressed up and I marched into his office and I said, this is what I believe God has for my life. Then he called my dad and hour later and said, I hope you’re sitting down. Cause I think you should let her do it. Oh, wow. She knows what she wants. She, she sees it and she, I don’t know what she’s going to do, but, um, high school is not where she’s supposed to be. So I just, I just saved
up all my money. I worked at Nordstrom full time, 40, 60 hours a week. My parents didn’t have the money to send me to Europe. Like that was, they were raising at the time three other kids and I’m running a restaurant in a daycare. So that was not in their schema to pay for their daughter to go off to Europe. Um, so it took me about 18 months and I, I, I saved all my money and I did everything and I bought my plane tickets. And, um, I did, I went off, I went off to Europe and exactly the way that the, the plan unfolded was exactly how I intended it to unfold. Um, until, you know, God led me to Romania and I did my sister’s adoption. And then, you know, that’s how it all folded into all God’s children. Yeah. Wow. What an incredible story. Um, and I, I can just imagine for your parents, I, um, it’s incredible that they, that they had the faith and trust to let you do that because, um, you know, thinking about letting your, you know, 18 year old, uh, embark on something like that, it’s not for the faint of heart, I guess. Oh, goodness. I mean, I think about it now with my kids in their twenties and I’m like, I don’t even know how they, I mean, they’ve both, my parents always have been people of great faith. I mean, they always have,
um, my grandparents are that way on both sides of the families. So I think who have that depth of relationship with God and great faith, they are able to do things that the ordinary person wouldn’t be able to do because letting your kid go without a cell phone, I mean to a third world country. And I mean, not really, no. I mean, I would go 30 days, not talking to my mom and we’d plan on, uh, you know, I’d be somewhere in Italy and I’d say, Hey, I think I should be on my Eurail pass by this day. And, and then I would, uh, give her a call from a payphone it’s, uh, technology was not what it, what it, what it is now. Wow. Yeah. That’s a whole nother component. I didn’t really think about is we’re so reliant on our, on our cell phones, on the internet and all of these things, I mean yeah. To, to, yeah, it did not. It did not exist. So yes, they did have to have a, a high level of faith and, um, you know, just in going to Romania, I just, cause that happened in the, um, that happened in the summer before I went off to first, I went to Austria. Then I traveled to Romania and I worked in an orphanage. And I mean, I’ve got to tell you that first trip to Romania, it was absolutely so hard, like so hard. I,
I, if I have one memory of the journey to starting all guns, children, it’s flying out of the Bucharest airport. I’m 18 years old. I’d been there for a week. And I actually remember sobbing as I left saying, Oh dear God, don’t ever make me come back to this place. I never want to come back here. I don’t know why you ever put this in my heart to come here. I mean, I just never, I just, I’ve never remember in my life having such a strong, um, does, does, does Dane for going back to a place? And when I think about, you know, what, why that was? I was scared. I felt so alone. Communism had just ended. I mean, you’re talking this American 18 year old. Who’s had everything she’s needed her whole life. And she shows up in a third world country where you wait, you wait in line for four hours to get French bread. You, you might get oranges on a two hour. Wait, I mean the food, I mean, it was just, and then the orphanages, they just smelled like, like urine branch, hardwood floors, and the, the urine smells just permeating through the floors and 30 children in a room. And they’re just all crying and no one’s hugging them and I’m going there and working in it every day, I left feeling like a failure. I left feeling like I, I didn’t do what I sought out to
do. Like, I wasn’t like strong enough to do it mentally. Um, so feeling, you know, what, what do we do when we feel like a failure? We say, screw this. I don’t, I don’t, Nope. I don’t want to come back to this place. This is a bad place. So then months passed and I’m sitting in the beautiful fields of, um, England with sheep everywhere and beautiful trees and fields and Bible school is in a castle. And my mom and dad call and say, will you go back to Romania? Um, and we want to adopt one of the little kids in your pictures. And it was so crazy because by that point, I was like, okay, this makes sense. Now it all makes sense. This is why, because I couldn’t figure out why I went to Romania for the love of God. I was like, this doesn’t make sense to me. I went, I didn’t like it. It was awful. I left and it just, it left me puzzled. And then when they called me that day, I really didn’t skip a beat. I was like, okay, I’m supposed to go back. This was what it was all about. And then it didn’t end up that mom and dad got the kid that they had originally seen in the pictures. And we found that out. I want to say like three weeks before I was supposed to get on an airplane and fly back to Romania.
The orphanage director told us, no, you can’t, your parents can’t adopt this little girl, Ramona, because she’s been adopted and she’s in Australia. So I then had to take that journey, not knowing who my parents were going to adopt. And I remember my mom saying like, if you can’t do this, Heather, we understand and I’ll fly to Romania and do it. And I just said, no, I know I’m supposed to do it. I’ll do it. That is, I mean, you think about that now. And like what a, it’s an amazing journey that you’ve had. And I mean, did you, was adoption something that your parents had talked about before? Like, was it surprising to you that they, um, ask this of you and that, you know, obviously you said it kind of made sense, looking back at like, this was such a traumatic experience and you know, now you understand why you had that to kind of prepare you for the journey that you would be on. Was that something that they had talked about, about adopting? You know, mom had always said when we were kids that she wanted to adopt, I mean, she made that no secret, um, but tad was completely against it. Dad was really no way. Absolutely. 100%. I do not want to adopt, I have four children you’re out of your mind. I do not want to adopt. So I mean, mom and dad had a journey there where,
where dad had to come. Dad had to come to the side of mom and eventually, do you, what changed from, you know, I think, I don’t know, mom, mom and dad. I think he just came to a place. You know, that’s something I I’d have to ask you to have to ask dad on that, how he came to that. I just know that he did. And once he did that was it. They were, they were in it. Wow. Um, but it’s definitely not something that I could foresee having happened. Right. Like it, it just, it just, it just happened. And then I was going to go back. The next thing I knew, mom and dad were calling me together saying, Hey, we, we, we want to adopt, so yeah. So tell me a little bit about that. So, you know, obviously there was a child who they felt, um, you know, initially kind of opened that door for them. B said her name was Ramona. Um, and then that door closed. How can you just tell me a little bit about how you ended up, you know, bringing Hannah home and meeting her birth mother and kind of how that all happened? Um, well, once I, once I got into to Bucharest, um, mom and dad kind of had things set up, you know, where people I would meet and where I kind of would stay through people that they knew. So I kinda got
that set up and I found my translators that were going to help me figure out who would be the child my parents would, would adopt. And so we, it was crazy times back in the nineties. I mean, you, you had, um, I don’t know if you remember, but there was that 20, 20 special where they showed all the children languishing in Romanian orphanages. So you had all these Americans just like descend upon Bucharest. I mean, it was insanity. You would walk into like a restaurant in the middle of Bucharest at like six o’clock at night and the entire restaurant was Waldo, all Americans and Canadians. And then you had people selling babies, walking into like the lobbies of hotels saying, I’ll sell you my baby for $500. I mean, it is a scene. So I mean, at the time it’s a scene and I am like, yeah, I think of 19 by now. So, um, and I’m trying to find a sister for my parents, you know, my parents, their child. So it’s trying to figure out how do I feel about it? W where do I, where do I kind of set my bar for how I’m going to find, find my sister? And so in all of that, I just said, I really am going to search until I find a birth mom or an orphanage that just really wants their child to go to a good home. And it’s not about like,
somebody’s forcing somebody because you had men that were forcing their woman, that they created a child with to give their babies. I mean, it was just, it was a really, really bad scene. So I just told my translators at the time Cherebon and Gabby, I just said, guys, I don’t care how long we have to search. We’re going to keep searching until I find a woman that really just wants us to help her and give her child a good home. So that was a journey, man, that took a while. And then I remember, um, the day that I found Hannah, it had snowed really, really hard in Bucharest. I mean, we’re talking deep snow and they picked me up at like six o’clock in the morning and we’d been searching for, I think we were right at about 10 or 14 days by that point. And they said, Hey, we’re going to go out to this Uzi Chen. There’s a maternity hospital in an orphanage out there. Let’s, let’s go out there and, you know, let, let’s see what happens. And the minute that we got there and I met Hannah’s mom, I just knew, wow. You just had kind of a sense of, of peace. You just knew that you were on the right path. Yeah. I mean, it was, it was like, Ooh, it kinda just brings back. Um, yeah, it just brings back. It’s kinda like one of those things, like where
you look back in time and you see the whole thing so clear and you it’s like, I was meeting her, her mom, I was seeing Hannah for the first time. I was all those things were happening, but I was like watching myself go through the mall and, um, and you just knew it was right. It was, it was right. And, um, and that was it. I just knew. I just knew. I just had that peace that this is it. And everything went according to plan. And I called my mom and dad, and then the rest is history. I just, um, I, I spent the next two, three weeks doing all the legal documents to bring Hannah home. And they met me at the airport. And, um, that’s where, you know, all God’s children really began because then at the airport, I mean, I’m 18, 19 years old at the time. And they’re saying, no, actually I, I take that back. I wasn’t 19. I was 18. And, um, and they said 18 year old brings her sister home across the country and completes international adoption. And they said, would you like to help other people? Would you like to help other people do this? And I said, yes, that’s what I want to do. And so then the phone rang off the hook for the next two to three days. I think we got like 85 90 phone calls. Oh my God. People got my
parents’ phone number. And then I, I decided with my parents on like two dossiers. And I don’t even remember what we charged the people. Like, I think we said like, it’s just going to be your expenses. We’ll let you know what the expenses are. And I told my parents, I’m going to get back on an airplane and I’m going to fly to Bucharest. And somebody got me an apartment. And I flew back with those two dossiers. And, and then the, you know, the rest is history. Then dad came and visited me in March and said to me, okay, Heather, if you’re going to do this, you really want to do this. Yes, dad, I really to do this. He said, then I want us to start a nonprofit organization and put protection around you. Because if this is your heart, and this is your goal, and this is what you want to do, we gotta be smart with us. So then he started him and mom started the five Oh one, three C and then for the many, many decades, you know, many years to follow, I was always the international side. And mom and dad were always the, um, the U S side. I always was the one putting together the stuff. I pretty much Eastern Europe and Guatemala. And then as we got bigger, you know, other people opened up other countries, but definitely my heart was always, I liked to be in
the foreign country, you know, starting, I like building something from a to Z. I still am a to Z person. I like, I love that idea of, um, yeah. Seeing something come to fruition. Yeah. Wow. I mean, I feel like I’m repeating myself, but it’s just, I’m still kind of just amazed at every piece of the story and thinking back, like, did you know, you know, you said getting off the airplane and, you know, people are kind of swarming you almost, you know, asking you questions and, and did you, did you know that this would, what this would lead to that, like the adoption of HANA would lead to the adoption of AGCI and you know, to date we’ve, you know, United over, gosh, I think over 4,000 kids with families starting with that one adoption. Um, did you, did you have a sense that that was what was to come? You know, it’s funny. No, I didn’t, I didn’t have a sense of that, but I had a sense that I just was supposed to be doing what I was doing. Like, and it’s so funny because, you know, being somebody who dropped out of high school, being somebody who, the only thing I’d done before I started all God’s children was work at Nordstrom for like, from the time I was 14 to 18, I worked at Nordstrom. I just remember thinking, I’m just, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. And
then if this doesn’t work out, I can always go back to Nordstrom. You got to remember, this is an 18, 19, 20 year olds, 50 year old woman’s brain. I mean, it’s a great fallback plan. You know, I I’ll just, I’ll just go back to Nordstrom, but I was really loving what I was doing. I mean, I loved it. Um, now that’s not to say that there were not some dark times. Um, in those years I lived, I really enjoyed Romania, but when I moved on to Bulgaria, that was much harder that wasn’t a co uh, that wasn’t a culture that I, um, that just wasn’t a culture that was as easy to live in. Um, but regardless, I remember there was a, there was a time in there that, um, my mom and dad said, you can just, if you don’t want to do this anymore, this is maybe two years in or three years in. They’re like, if you want out, we are in. So if you want out, because of what you’re feeling right now at 22, 23, we, um, we, we release you to, you know, we want you to be okay. And I remember going to bed that night. I was visiting home from Romania or Bulgaria probably. And I just remember going, things are tough for me right now. I’m not okay right now. I don’t want to do this right now, but I can’t leave. I can’t, I
just couldn’t, I couldn’t, I just was like committed to it. And so I stuck with it. I just, um, I stuck with it and I’m glad I did. Um, because when you really look at it at the time, all God’s children who was just mom, dad, and me, I mean, my, my sister Holland, who now runs all God’s children. Um, I mean, she was a teenager. She was in middle school playing soccer and, uh, being a middle schooler. So, I mean, had I said, Hey, mom and dad, I’m not going back to Romania. I mean, I wasn’t an idiot. I knew if I didn’t go back to Eastern Europe, how I just, I couldn’t see it. We, we, we had a thing going where they were doing the U S side and I was doing the international side and I just knew that I was supposed to do it. So, I mean, it goes back to when things are hard, um, staying the course, like, I, I try to say that to my kids as they grow in, like, things are good. Things are never going to be easy. You know, we just aren’t. No, that’s, that’s very true. Um, so what were, you know, I mean, what were those early years? Like? I mean, obviously it was not easy as you said, but how are you? Because to me, I mean, I just can’t even imagine how you start something like this, to be
honest, like, how do you start forming those relationships? How do you build trust within the country? Um, what, how did you do that? You know? Oh, wow. Um, you know, again, it’s so weird to be older, reflecting back on it, you know, cause at the time you’re not thinking, um, I honestly think it must have, it just had to be God enabling me to do it. I honestly, I mean, I see that I did it really well, but I can’t say to you, well, you know, I just, I was trained to do it. I wasn’t trained to do it. I mean, it’s like, like when you look at that scripture, um, which was a scripture that was extremely important to me at the time where I know I have the plans for you. Um, Jeremiah, and I’m losing it right now. It’s a four, I know the plans I have for you. Yeah. Declares the Lord plans to prosper you. Yeah. And all of that, I, um, I honestly do feel like God just enabled me, whether it’s just in the way that he made me, I always had an innate ability to know what I needed to do in a certain situation to get a certain goal accomplished. And somehow I had that in me from the time I was young. So when I got into Romania and I took that first step to do Hannah’s adoption, um, I can always see things outside
the box. So I think I just, I knew how to move with everything out of the box. Um, I think one of the great gifts of being more of an ADHD mind, which I would definitely, you know, proudly say that is my mind. Um, I see things, I see all the colors I see outside the box. I see things other people don’t see and God created me that way. And I think sometimes people, when they have what is considered a learning disability or, you know, different things, they don’t see the beauty in it, but that’s why God makes everybody differently. And in this case, he took a high school dropout, somebody who hated school, who couldn’t just couldn’t be caged in that system. It didn’t work. And he allowed all those things that made my personality the way it is. And he, he, he just used that to, to do something. Um, because honestly all those things just came very, very naturally to me. Um, being in scary situations that would scare other people. I mean, I was an 18 year old in third world countries. I mean, yes, that initial time I was scared, but not so scared that I didn’t end up going back. Like I just, I kind of had that inertia in my personality. Yeah. Wow. I love what you said about kind of things that people, you know, tend to look at as disadvantages or something are actually gifts. I
think that’s so true. Um, and I don’t think it’s framed that way enough that, you know, we are all made, we’re all different. Right. And that’s kind of, uh, what makes the world beautiful is that we all have these unique gifts to offer and you might not know what they are yet, but they’re there. Um, so I love that take on that 30 years of AGCI, um, looking back, what are you most, what are you most proud of that, um, he GCI has been able to accomplish, you know, I just think the fact that we’re sitting here talking at 30 years and, um, that AGCI has been able to do everything that it’s done. I guess I see so much other ministry. And I mean, I’m sure if my sister was sitting here with me, I’m sure she would have a good amount to add to this, but I feel like there’s been so many other ministries that have been born off of that ministry. I mean, I went on to when Holland, we had Holland running all God’s children, mom and dad going into retirement. I went on to do a new one, a new ministry, which is forever changed. And I I’ve been running an orphanage now in Guatemala city for, Oh gosh, I don’t even know. I mean, my daughter’s 21. So I’ve been running that orphanage for a long, long time. I, I started it while I was still at all
God’s children. So forever changed now has been a ministry for, for close to 13 years. And then I look at all the ministries that have spun off of just forever change. So you’ve got to, you’ve got to go back to the root, you know, there is all God’s children. Then one would think that you would be giving me this interview. And I would be the one running all God’s children, but that’s not the way that the story unfolded. I went on to start another organization, which has been serving children. And then from that organization, I have a gal who ended up coming down as an intern and she is going to graduate in three weeks with her law degree in Guatemala. Wow. And she’s been serving children since the time I let her be an intern 20 years ago. I mean, like, it’s just crazy to me. And I know, I know my sister Holland would have those same stories of people that were involved in all God’s children that went off and launched another ministry. So I think probably I feel the most proud that it expands past what AGCI has done. It’s not even just AGCI and all the beauty that AGCI brings through adoption and orphan care. I think that it ripples out to other people hearing the story of all God’s children, how it began as a family, how it grew, how it changed, how it adapted and how other ministries
then are born off of that ministry. I think to me, that’s the true beauty of the whole story. Yeah. Wow. That’s such a good point. I mean, it’s kind of like the ripples, right? It’s it starts, it starts in one place and then it just kind of goes out. And when you think about it from that lens, it’s kind of like that the impact is, is endless in a way because everyone, you know, whether through actually, you know, serving and doing the work or, you know, have a recipient of the work they’re impacted and they’re going to change other lives because you know what I mean? I mean, that’s kind of right. I mean, it is, it’s, it’s a complete ripple effect. I mean, I’m gonna, I’m gonna fly out in like three weeks, I think to see our very first child from the orphanage in Guatemala, she’s graduating from Biola university. So we, we got her over to the United States on a visa and she’s been in school here and she’s going to graduate with her communications degree. And she came to the orphanage when she was six years old. Wow. And, um, I mean, yeah, and you guys had all got shuttered, you have the same kind of different stories and all the different, I mean, so it’s just, it just keeps on going and I’m, I would not even doubt that yelly who’s going to be graduating from Biola will go on
and do ministry. I would not even doubt that she ends up back in her own country, probably opening her own orphanage. If I had to give it a guess. I mean, I saw an interview the other day, you guys were over at my house and we were doing an interview thing and it was, it, it was an old interview of myself at 18 something. And I said, um, you know, somebody was asking me, why do you do what you do? And it’s I said the answer, and I still say this answer today. And other circumstances of things I do in my life. And that is because I can, so I feel like when, you know, you can do something good for somebody and granted all God’s children is a big display of doing something good, but you could be doing something little good or something giant. You’ve got to start somewhere. So I feel like as an 18 year old girls saying, you know what? I saw a need, there is a need, I can make a difference. I’m gonna make a difference. I feel like it starts there. And when you make that decision to do that, it allows God to have a ripple effect. If you just sit in a little box and you don’t do that in small ways, then, then you’re not able to let, what could happen happen. And so I think all God’s children is the story of God.
Being able to use a family, a teenager, and continued for over 30 years to let what could happen happen. But it took people because God has to use people. It took people doing good things, and I’m just really following. God’s called to love orphans and to love people in need and to serve. I mean, that’s the whole basis of our faith is to love others and do onto others. Yeah. Wow. And that’s such, I mean, that’s something that everyone can take away from. Right. Cause it’s like, sometimes we look at people and we’re like, wow, you know, this person did this incredible thing and started this organization and, and you know, that’s true and that’s an admirable, but, um, we all have the power to help in some way. Right. And it might, it might seem small to you, but it’s not like it all matters. Um, and, and then it changed it, it just, it just keeps rippling out. It just keeps you helping someone else. And then that person can help someone out. Like it just keeps going. Um, keeping it simple too. Cause like when you asked me that question a little, few minutes ago about, um, did you think it would be this, like, did you ever think, and you know, that’s the thing when people are just genuine and just doing the right thing for the right reasons and just seeing where God leads something. No, I didn’t because I
was just doing what needed to be done and it felt right to do it. And all of the greatness that AGCI became. I mean, that was never in my hands. Like, and I think when people can just put themselves in that space and it’s just such a good thing, I think God can bring really awesome things to be, but you know what we get, I mean, as humans we get in God’s way, because we’re not always in that perfect space with God, our whole life, right? Like you have different seasons. I mean, at 18 God had my undivided attention at that moment. Um, I mean, I’d be lying to say my whole entire 50 years of life, God has always had my undivided attention as he did in that time. So when I looked back at it, I’m like, gosh, look what God can do through somebody when he has their undivided attention. I think that’s another important piece of the story. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That’s incredible. Well, and just again, I mean, to be 18 years old and to have that depth of faith is, um, remarkable really. Wow. Well, gosh, Heather, thank you so much for sharing all of this. I it’s, it’s so fun. I mean, I, um, you know, for all my time with AGCI, I’ve, you know, I know we kind of talk about the beginnings in such a simplified way as kind of starting, you know, Heather, you and
