Welcome to The Village. As you may have figured, our name is derived from the old saying, “It takes a village…”. In today’s world this adage rings more and more true with the way our families are tormented and pressured to conform to today’s “Normal” or “Acceptable” image. Here at The Village, we believe that there is no greater gift in this world than the gift of life and we strive to promote means of protecting it. We encourage those who have heard the call of adoption to follow it full fledged and for other to join the pro-life movement in this country and fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
We at The Village recognize every family has its own identity and has its unique characteristics that make them who they are, but at the same time, every family has challenges that we can all relate to, and in some instances be the support that those families need. For some, it starts from the moment a husband and wife decide they are ready for children and are told that it is physically impossible. For others, it's hearing the miraculous news that a precious child is on their way, but realizing they are not ready in one way or another to raise and support a child.
Our mission at The Village is to be a centralized source of information and support for those who are considering the journey of adoption. Whether you’re the single mom struggling to make ends meet, to the seasoned loved birds who are longing for the sounds of the familiar pitter-patter to fill their home again, and everyone in between. We are here for you no matter what has lead you to consider adoption. Our desire is to reach out to those on the adoption journey and share the lessons we’ve learned to help make your journey the special event that it is meant to be.
We are a Christian based organization founded upon our core scripture of Mark 9:37: “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” We believe that every single child is a precious gift from God and in just the way that He “adopted” us; the greatest gift we can give a child is the gift of adoption. But the greatest things in life often require the hardest efforts and greatest sacrifices. The joy that family celebrates with the addition of a child comes with the gut wrenching & heart breaking decision of another family to place the child for adoption.
Our name is also our guiding principles:
Vision Integrity Life Love Advocacy Godliness Empathy
God has brought us together and challenged us with this mission and through His grace, with His strength, and by His will we are here to be the advocates for adoption and advocates for life. Our task is to remove the misconceptions and the confusion about adoption and to see that no child created by our Heavenly Father leaves this Earth without having every chance to live life to the fullest. We look forward to being part of your journey. Whether it’s the shoulder to cry on during the disappointment and heartbreak, or the friends to celebrate the triumphs, know that you are not alone and with God’s grace, YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!
