Every Child Deserves

The Love Of A Family 

We believe there is no substitute for the care of a family, even in the best of facilities. Over 8 million orphaned children living in institutions are denied love and supported family interactions. Life without a daily warm embrace or compassionate words of affirmation leaves vulnerable children without a firm emotional foundation, especially those deemed to be special needs. Brittany’s Hope believes all children deserve the basic right to grow up in a nurturing family environment and be a part of society.

We work relentlessly on building a bridge to unite children with special needs to families with open hearts to adopt but are burdened by the substantial fees associated with inter-country adoption. Working with our affiliate agencies, we provide financial adoption assistance to make adoptions possible for some of the most high risk-children.

What Are Special Needs?

In the spectrum of international adoption, children with ‘special needs’ are those deemed difficult to place due to their age, physical or mental handicap, and sibling groups. Children with more specialized needs are at a greater risk for dependence- therefore, there are a disproportionate number of children with special needs who are abandoned.

Age
The age limit at which a child is considered to have special needs differs greatly between countries. Typically a child older than five will become a member of a waiting child list.
At-Risk
A child who is currently healthy, could be at-risk of developing learning, emotional, or behavioral disabilities in the future is considered ‘at-risk.’ This includes babies exposed to drugs, abuse, neglect, and those with genetic pre-dispositions to mental illness and physical disabilities.
Disabilities
Disabilities include mental, physical, and emotional limitations which can range from mild to severe. Behavioral issues are part of the emotional group.
Sibling Groups
Often times, siblings are the only family children have in orphanages. Separating them can further compound emotional stress.

The Sims Family

We are Shane and Yanin Sims. Our family consists of our daughter Addyson, our son Max, and our son Sebastien. In 2018, we traveled to China to bring Max home, and we knew then, that our journey with adoption was not done yet! God called us to this path. In 2020, we started the process of adopting our daughter in China, but unfortunately, COVID-19 hit, and China closed its doors. We cannot go get her, but we are still waiting. At the beginning of 2022, we started talking about doing something else, not just waiting for Sophie to come home, so we decided to bring another sweet girl home, and decided to adopt Gianna from Colombia. We cannot wait to bring her home and give her all the love and care she deserves.

The Grier Family

We are the Grier family, Jon, Kim, Jacob, Sawyer, and Lawson. Jon and Kim met in college and have been married for 12 years. Jon is an IT Director and Kim is a pediatric hospice nurse. In line with Kim’s passion for supporting children, she is in the process of receiving her doctorate in nursing from Duke University with a focus on supporting vulnerable children…Due to our experiences with the foster care system, we know the need for loving families for many children and this inspired us to adopt again. We wanted to open our hearts and home to another child, and due to my husband’s ties to South America, we wanted to adopt from Colombia.
