Last week we had a remarkable response to our Facebook photo of our most recent arrival, baby girl Angel, and we now have over 5,000 followers on Facebook that take an interest in the amazing lives of the children in Angel House. We had so many people messaging us that wanted to adopt this abandoned baby and we always direct them to the adoption Q&A on this website to educate them about adoption in the Philippines.

The Philippines has very strict laws regarding adoption and follows UN guidelines and the Hague convention on the protection of children and co-operation in respect of inter-country adoption. It also promotes domestic adoption to preserve the child’s identity and culture; the Department of Social Welfare and Development always tries to match the child with approved adoptive parents in this country before considering international adoption through approved agencies.

The mother of our four siblings came to Angel House on Saturday to have another birthday celebration for GK and EJ, who both have birthdays this month. Everyone enjoyed sharing their delicious cakes and ice cream for their afternoon snack. PHOTO: mother with two of her children.

 

A big thanks to the Figueroa family in the USA; every year they send us a big box of supplies for Angel House and it is always really great things such as good quality clothes, underwear and socks, slippers and shoes, school-bags, fantastic educational toys and even some food such as peanut butter and Nutella. They even included batteries for the electronic games, so an extra bonus thanks to such a thoughtful family! Our children really appreciated everything and thanks for your continued support.
