One less. That’s our heartbeat. We want to see one less child in foster care, one less child orphaned, one less child aborted, and one less child trafficked. We are passionate about embracing the Father heart of God, demonstrating His love and compassion and reaching children-at-risk with the hope of the Gospel. Our ministry exists to educate, equip, and mobilize the Grace Church family to engage in issues of injustice, affecting children and youth, across the street and around the world.
In the spring of 2004, I had just returned from leading a mission trip to China where we spent time with children who had various mental and physical disabilities. I remember telling God that while I was grateful for the experience, I couldn’t imagine parenting a child with a disability. I was 20-weeks pregnant with my third child, looking forward to a routine ultrasound, seeing my baby, hearing the heartbeat, and making sure everything was okay.
