It is National Volunteer Appreciation Week. And, boy, do we have great volunteers!

Been There, Done That. Children's Hope Adoptive Parents (CHAPs) are families who have adopted orphaned children from across the globe and now seek to give back to other prospective adopting families. To those just beginning their adoptions, the knowledge and experience of parents before them is one of the greatest gifts they can receive!

To all our cherished CHAPs Volunteers ~

Helping out,
Lending a hand,
Someone who will understand,
A person who will always be there,
Without a doubt, someone who cares ~ that's you, our volunteers!

Next month, CHAPs will mark 6 years of making a difference in our communities. Our CHAPs families are over 300 families strong throughout the US and we want to recognize each of them for their meaningful volunteer efforts.

Thank you, CHAPs, for volunteering your precious time to answer emails and telephone calls about your adoption experience. Thank you for the selfless giving of your time to host CHAPs information meetings. In all of these things, thank you for remembering the children who are still waiting for their forever families. As you volunteer, you are keeping these children close to your heart and reminding others that they are precious.

May God bless you richly!
