Foster and Adoption Ministries

Connect 1:27 is the foster care and adoption ministry of Louisiana Baptist Children's Home. It is based on James 1:27 "Religion that our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..."

Foster children are modern-day orphans who have been removed from their homes by the state. The Children's Home seeks to connect these children with Christian families and churches who care. We provide orientations for prospective foster parents, conduct home studies for certifications, offer seminars for churches to develop foster care and adoption ministries, and provide ongoing training to enhance care skills.

We also provide adoption services for families seeking to provide forever homes for children available for adoption.
