About The Brooks Family
Cody & Hannah
When it came time to talk about having kids, adoption was on the table as much as having children biologically. Cody was adopted himself, and Hannah has a personal history heavily involved with orphanages, as her family helped start one in Eastern Europe when she was a child. It just made sense that adoption would be our first choice in how we begin growing our family. Once we landed in Colombia and read about Jaider and Nallelhi, and learned about what their personalities were like, we knew that they would be a perfect fit for our family. We have always been open to adopting siblings and are looking forward to having our home and family complete when they come home.
What is a Brittany's Hope Adoption Grant?
Brittany’s Hope believes in the fundamental right of all children to have the security and love of a family. There are an estimated 153 million orphans living around the world (UNICEF – 02/2011). These staggering statistics are heartbreaking considering a large number of these children are special needs, who have little or no value in the eyes of their own country. They are left to languish in institutions, where they receive minimal care and live hopeless, helpless lives.
The cost of international adoption can be overwhelming and is only further compounded by the medical and accessibility costs a child with special needs presents. Our Adoption Grant Program provides grant monies while giving families the opportunity to assist Brittany’s Hope in raising funds so the next child may also be united with their forever family. The phrase “It takes a village to raise a child,” takes on new meaning as the “seeds” of the adoptive family’s friends, family and neighbors take root and help provide future families with adoption grants. With a gift to Brittany’s Hope, a donor’s monetary support of the Adoption Grant Program means double for the adoptive family.
