Become a Foster or Adoptive Family

You may prayerfully consider becoming a foster or adoptive parent. With 4,800 children in Louisiana foster care, there is an urgent need for Christians to open their hearts and homes to these modern-day orphans. Our Connect 1:27 Foster Care & Adoption Ministries works in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services to recruit Christian foster and adoptive parents. Connect 1:27 provides encouragement to the families throughout their foster and adoptive journeys and also helps churches to develop orphan care ministries.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting, please go to www.connect127.org or contact Louisiana Baptist Children's Home at 318-343-2244.
