Providence World Ministries, specifically works with widows and orphans (although everyone who comes in contact with that place is affected). It was during our trip that we felt confirmation to go forward with what we'd been researching and thinking about for the past couple years- having children from Latin America.
When we came back from our trip, we connected with the only agency we knew to be working in this very difficult-to-adopt-from country. Turned out, we were a little too late. The agency was no long accepting any "test families" to complete what will be some of the first, agency regulated, Honduran adoptions. However, it was mentioned that El Salvador was opening up and we later learned that 1 final "test family" was needed for this new country. Sign us up.
That was back in January of 2006. (See my husband's inaugural post.)
