Through Bridges of Faith
Bridges of Faith started with a goal of offering Ukrainian orphans the opportunity to be hosted in the homes of Christian Americans. Its reach has extended nationally and continuous to grow. Though not an adoption agency, many of the children hosted through Bridges of Faith have gone on to be adopted by their host families or others through the appropriate legal processes. Bridges of Faith has legal counsel both in the United States and in Ukraine, and has an exceptional record of successful hosting.
With 25 years of experience, Bridges of Faith has a track record of success, however the war in Ukraine has changed much for Ukrainian orphans. Even so, the commitment of Bridges of Faith to the well-being of these precious children remains steadfast and unwavering, even as we expand our reach to include others from Ukraine who are in need.
As we collectively come to terms with the impact of a cruel dictator ordering the invasion and bombing of the sovereign nation of Ukraine, we are reminded that the rulers of this world are just that. We place our hope in the true sovereignty of our heavenly father, knowing that his desires for us, and moreover for the children of Ukraine are good. Because we trust in God, we feel led to minister to the people of Ukraine, now more than ever. In the coming weeks, Bridges of Faith will share more of the exciting inspirations God has placed in our hearts. Until then, know that the gifts you give are being used to meet real needs right now.
