It is no secret that the adoption and fostering journey is an exciting time of our life but the wait can sometimes be unbearable with unforeseen roadblocks that can take a toll on couples. On October 9th at 5pm we are having our first event called The Waiting Room. This is a support group event/time set aside for families that are waiting for a prolonged period of time for their child they are pursuing to adopt or any challenges a family is facing during the process of fostering a child. This time will be a time of listening, encouraging, and praying for their children and family. Please feel free to come be encouraged and prayed for.
THE WAITING ROOM
When: October 9
Time: 5p - 6:30p
Where: HPC Arena Meeting Room 3
If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
On June 18 we were blessed to hold a free Adoption Workshop. We are thankful for the hearts of the people who attended this workshop the day before Father's Day! What a great group of families!
Our Adoption Workshops are a great place to begin if you are thinking and praying whether adoption is something God is calling you to do. You will receive a biblical perspective of what God says about adoption along with lots of information about both the International and Domestic adoption process. We address ways to afford the adoption costs along with providing you encouragement and support as you pray and walk out God's call!
If you are interested in attending one of our workshops or have questions regarding adoption, please feel free to email us about our next adoption workshop or ask us any questions you may have in regards to adoption. email@example.com
Thanks to the team that served for this event and the people that took their time to attend!
We were so blessed to have Healing Place Church have Adoption Sunday on May 22! We were honored to be linked with organizations such as Mission of Mercy and Children's Cup! The thread that connects each of us is the fatherless of the world. One ministers to the child's needs through sponsorship, another brings hope to children from very hard places in this world, while another connects them to their forever family through adoption. All glory goes to God and all are important in His eyes.
A big thanks to the HPC creative team for working so hard to bless us with a fresh new look! Also, thanks to HPC pastors and staff that have supported us through the years as we set out to be a resource for adoption! THANK YOU!

Who Are We?
Hello and welcome to our orphan adoption ministry at Healing Place Church called "His Heart for Orphans" in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We are a resource and support system for any one who has adopted or who is thinking about adoption. We have some amazing couples who have walked the path of adoption here at HPC. Between all of us, we have experienced infertility, emotional highs and lows, domestic and international adoption, different race adoptions, special needs adoption, sibling adoptions, financial "sticker shock", and adoptions from birth to 15 years old. We hope to be a source of hope and an inspiration to you along with a place to help you through any situation you may be facing that pertains to adoption.
