    We do what we do as missionaries supported by people like you.

    We also prefer to give away as much content as we can, and not cloud that issue with a lot of public requests. That said, we do have specific needs that are met by people who believe the work we do has value.

    If you'd like a short list of immediate financial needs, you can find it HERE.

    Thanks!

Adoption

bg_headerthezoefoundation1

Kelsey and I spent much of 2005 on the steps of the Supreme Court with Lou Engle, praying silently for the unborn children who are killed every day in America.

During that time, we got to see first hand how some people relate to the issue of abortion.   To be quite honest, there are people on both sides of this argument that I find hard to deal with.  The pro-abortion side is very angry. More than once my children had strangers yell vile things into their ear as they stood silently…things that I didn’t really want to explain or define to them.

In the interest of fairness, the pro life side can be angry too.  I’ve seen signs that made me cringe; not because they weren’t true, but because they were more interested in condemning people than challenging ideas.   Mark Twain once said “In any important argument in life, there are always people on your side who you wish were not.”    I’ve met a few.

In spite of abortion being one of the most inflammatory issues of our day, I am encouraged because I sense opportunity in the wind.

Lou Engle wrote “There are moments in history when a door for massive change opens and great revolutions for good or evil spring up in the vacuum created by these openings. In these divine moments, key men and women and even entire generations risk everything to become the hinge of history, the pivotal point that determines which way the door will swing.”

With the current onslaught against the unborn, we are faced with the daunting task of rescuing children targeted for genocide and – just importantly – changing the hearts and minds of those involved in the process.   In our time, the LIFE movement is graciously offered by God a moment to get it right.   This is our hinge of history.

Maybe you’ve never made that connection…and for a long time, neither did we, but God spoke to us about adoption, we instantly associated it with the 4,500 babies whose lives are ended every day in America.

One of the legitimate arguments of the pro-abortion side is “If you’re successful in stopping abortion, what will you do with all of these unwanted babies?   Being born doesn’t make them wanted…”   An idea began to germinate in our hearts – If we can make adoption accessible to many people, and can raise an army of people who say ‘yes’ to it, a major abortion argument is null and void.

Adoption is more than saying ‘no’ to abortion, it’s an answer to the ultimate question – are these children wanted by someone?

This idea is behind The Zoe Foundation, dedicated to promoting adoption as an alternative to abortion in America.  More info at www.thezoefoundation.com

  1. Hi Randy!
    Thanks for all you do. And for who you are.
    Paul and I are wanting to get “certified” and our home study done. Do you have any contact info. or recommendations of how to begin that process?
    Thank you!
    Jen:)

  2. As a Pioneering Missionary/Midwife to Honduras, and Mother of adopted son, Joshua (6yrs old). Our heart beats with the same urgency as yours! Living in in a nation where adoption is frowned upon, by the Government, church & locals….we are fighting a spiritual, social & moral battle!

    Our Ministry is small, but our faith in God HUGE – and we are trusting God to help us to be a “voice for the voiceless” & to see the walls of injustice crumble under the mighty hand of God! Please pray for us as we continue to strive and save children from lives of institutional neglect….we do this one child….one life….one victory at a time! For His Kingdom Glory!!

  3. AMEN! And their are so many families who would be willing to take them in, if they knew the process and could afford the process…. I was afraid, because we wanted to but couldn’t afford it, that’s why we went to DSS and was burned by it. Now I am home, childless and waiting on God to show me His plan for me.

  4. I want to start out by saying that I am not a very religious person. While I strongly believe in God I cannot say that I subscribe to one faith. I happened upon this site through a link on a friend’s facebook page and started to read a little bit. I was very impressed for the most part by what I have read.
    I am a birth parent and my stance on adoption vs. abortion is, I feel a unique one. While being pro-choice, my position is exactly that pro-CHOICE and I feel that what Randy says is correct.
    I think that given the chance if many young women did not feel that they were being judged by their peers, community, the world in general and most of all one day, the child they are giving up ( as I did and do) that many more would choose adoption over abortion. I think that many people in the pro-choice movement don’t see adoption as a CHOICE and I think it is.
    I think Randy hits it right on the nose, however one thing I would like to point out about this is that he states “Adoption is more than saying ‘no’ to abortion, it’s an answer to the ultimate question – are these children wanted by someone?”
    Perhaps I am misreading this but, I just want to clarify in general that I ALWAYS wanted my child..I just wanted a better life for him than I knew that I could ever give him.
    I think that this is exactly where the train goes off the tracks just a bit in the Adoption vs.Abortion argument. Young girls feel that is WHY they will be judged..that they don’t want the baby..I can assure you with quite a bit of knowledge on the subject that is the one thing birth mothers can’t stand..the thought that people, most importantly the one they are bringing into this word will think they are unwanted.
    If I could as a birth mother find a way through a group or foundation or something regardless of it’s religious stance to help girls or speak about my experience I would without a doubt throw my voice out there to promote adoption.
    I feel adoption a beautiful thing and without “tooting my own horn” I think that it is and will always be the most important achievement in my life. And am proud of my choice.

  5. Randy, thank you so much for what you do in His service. I am post-abortive (healed by God). How I wish that I had encountered someone like you or CATG when I was in need. I pray that you will have millions of women in need flock to your website, and I also pray that you will have millions of families ready to receive them. Maybe one day, God willing my husband and I will be able to be one family with open arms. Thank you and your wife for your beautiful testimony.

  6. I am so GLAD that there are people that will stand in the gap. It has been my hearts desire to love the children that were once unwanted. My husband and i have plans of opening our home to a child in need.

    Thank you

  7. Yeehaa! THANK YOU for creating Zoe Foundation. Spreading the word.

    FYI–we have three sons from Uganda. ;o) + 2 others that we made.

  8. I love what you guys are doing! I recently added your youtube video to one of my blogs. Lou told me about your adoption agency last time he was in Redding. It made me want to jump on a plane and move to Kansas City to help with this cause. Maybe I will someday! Actually, my husband and I flew to Kansas City last February for a business meeting and while I was there, the Lord showed me the following about that state: He showed me that Kansas was the heart of the nation. And to turn a nation, you have to change the heart. He showed me he was raising up a movement from Kansas that would change the nation. And then he showed me there was a spirit of adoption over the state. I was so thrilled to hear of what you guys were doing after He showed me all of that. Keep going after it, you have all my prayer support and if there is anything else I can do, please let me know.

  9. Awesome. Thank you for sharing.

    We adopted our biological niece when she was 3-months-old. I am a big proponent for adoption and am encouraged to read this post.

  10. Thank you so much for this. I am an adoptee and also a single mom who has adopted a little boy at birth. I was abandoned at the hospital in the same city I have been raised in.

    I had 1 month from the day I heard about him till he was born (it was a private adoption).

    I want to adopt another child when my son is around 3 (he just turned 2).

    Adoption is my heart because it is God’s heart. He has told me that I will have 5 children, all adopted. I am so ready for this.
