Summary

Connie's Home is a group foster home in northern Thailand providing care for children awaiting international adoption. Some 50 children have been adopted out over the life of the home. Food and diapers are among the highest expenses in operating a healthy home. We provide some food from an on-site Aquaponics project to help offset the cost of nutritious food. Salaries for our Thai staff, some who are former drug mules from the Juvenile Detention Center, are our greatest monthly expense.

Challenge

Connie's Home was established to care for sick infants that are awaiting adoption. Often these children are set aside after being added to the adoption lists because their unaided health condition progresses and eventually results in being removed from the list, sometimes due to death.

Solution

It is the mission of Connie's Home staff to recognize the value and potential of each child, nursing them back to health until the children can be successfully adopted. Each child receives therapy and the care physically, emotionally, and socially that will help them through the adoption transition ahead. We had 50 children adopted out internationally over the past 19 years.

Long-Term Impact

By employing marginalized young women, including some who have served time in the Juvenile Detention Center for carrying drugs, we hope to demonstrate how to plan a family and provide loving care for children while being employed in a legal, healthy environment. We have trained over 50 of these young women over the past 19 years.
