Recruiting Ambassadors for Waiting Children

Waiting Children, HIV, Siblings, Older Kids


Around the world, the face of international adoption is changing. Many positive things have happened over the past many years in international adoption. As economics have changed and improved, and cultural norms have adjusted, more orphaned and abandoned children have been adopted within their country of birth. This is great news which should be celebrated! White it means fewer infants are available for adoption internationally it does mean more opportunities for what are known as “waiting kids”, i.e., children with mild, moderate or significant special needs, healthy older children and healthy sibling groups of all ages. A Love Beyond Borders actively works to place waiting children of all ages and needs, and part of our is advocacy. Having a forever family can make all the difference in a child’s life.

What can you do to change a child’s life? A Love Beyond Borders is asking you to join our efforts and become an Ambassador for Waiting Children. Partner with us to spread the word about the need and help find families for Waiting Children. Unfortunately, these children are sometimes more difficult to place for adoption. Much of the difficulty arises from lack of awareness of the number and type of waiting children and the need for permanent families. These children are deserving of stability, love, opportunity and families as are all children! They should not grow in an orphanage but should grow in a family. They need your help!

By spreading the word about the work we do, you are enabling us to help more waiting children across the world find a loving family. There are a variety of ways you can raise awareness about our waiting kids.

It’s easy to help! You can help by posting or sharing the information we will provide to you about our waiting children on your social media forums, host an info session at your church/temple, or at your place of employment, school event, or putting a waiting child profile in your church/temple weekly bulletin. Have a blog? Link to our website or do an article about waiting children. Upon request LBB will provide you with email or printed materials about our waiting child program and available children. As an ambassador you can direct families to our website at or Facebook page at Information on waiting children internationally will be updated frequently. We will be sending out regular emails regarding waiting children and ask you to spread the word as you are able. However you chose to share our message, you will be making a real difference to our work and the lives of the children.

Please contact Anney Morris at or call 303-333-1572 for more information, to join the email list, or to obtain materials to help you succeed in this important mission.
