Why I Do This - Hong An's Story

Why I Do This - Christina Doerter's Story

It was only a brief time that I lived in Knoxville, Tennessee, the state-side headquarters of Homes of Love. During that time though, I was introduced to the mission and heart of Homes of Love and began a partnership with them that has lasted almost a decade.

A Zimbabwean Family's Story - Why We Do This...

In 2014, we learned about Homes of Love from Shad and Millie, the parents in Zimbabwe’s first HOL home.

When we inquired more they told us about Homes of Love and we couldn't wait to commit ourselves to partner in this ministry. Our goal was to make a difference...

Why I Do This - Janet's Story

My heart for orphans began in the process of adopting our son from Vietnam in April 1994.  My husband stayed home with our daughter as I traveled with good friends, Gary and Debbie Chesney.  After a week in Ho Chi Minh City, I finally traveled with our Vietnamese guide and a government official to south Vietnam to get our son.  In my journal I wrote of pain and sadness as I saw the plight of...

Amanda's Story - Why I Do This

Three dollars … What would you do with three dollars? In America, three dollars can't buy much—a Diet Coke, a pack of gum, or maybe some hair ties. In Cambodia, much of the population and the average Homes of Love partner survives on only three dollars a day. It’s a different world from my closet full of clothes for every season and my daily Starbucks run. When I look down the streets of Phnom Penh,...
