Through our "Little Hearts" medical missions, our program provides life-saving medical equipment and helps to fund heart surgeries for orphaned and abandoned children in the world.



Whether it's providing food, shelter, clothing or any other basic necessities to orphaned and abandoned children, our goal is to meet their basic needs. Our orphan care includes a sponsorship program serving seventeen children in Uganda, Cambodia, India, and China.



As part of our adoption advocacy, we aim to break down the financial barriers of adoption with our $1,000 grants and the gift of a strategic prayer partner.

Now Available!



"extraordinary" - an inspirational compilation of thirteen beautiful stories chronicling the adoptions of children with Down syndrome. This labor of love, compiled by Cady Driver and published by JPV Press, will make you laugh and cry, and it will touch your heart. 

The best part is that all of the royalties for this book are being given to Open Hearts for Orphans to help more families adopt children with Down syndrome through our "Say Yes" grant program. 


Our non profit organization has created a new series called "Stories of Yes." Don't miss these inspirational accounts featured on our social media pages each week! Your heart will be opened and touched by these moving personal testimonies from adoptive families! 

You can find the series on Facebook, Instagram, and our blog.


Sponsorship Spotlight


Precious Joshua is two years old and came into our sponsorship program in October 2018.  He has  Down  syndrome and a post-operative intestinal issue. Fortunately, Joshua has the dedication of special  healing home  nannies who will take all the time necessary to feed and  nurture him. 

You can sponsor Joshua here and receive monthly updates about his wonderful progress when you do.


Ways to help

 We are all called to care for orphans, but not all of us are called in the same way. 

What's your passion - Adoption and foster care?  Donating to provide life-changing medical care to an orphaned or abandoned child in need?  Helping to meet the most basic needs of orphaned and abandoned children - like food, water, and clothing? Joining our brigade as an orphan sponsorship partner? 

We urge you to reflect upon your role, and we would love to have you on our team of orphan care warriors!


Meet Daniel - the real founder of this organization. He was a beautiful two-year-old boy living in  China with CHD (congenital heart disease). Jim and Lisa Murphy made him their son in 2010 and were given four treasured months with him in their lives. When his broken body could not recover from the open-heart surgery that he needed, their little boy left this world on Trinity Sunday that same year. They were devastated, but they did not lose hope. God  called Jim and Lisa to a few things straight away - the first was to share their son's life story with others, which Lisa penned into a memoir called With an Open Heart (ALL royalties go to Open Hearts for Orphans), and every scrap of detail they could remember about their sweet son is preserved within those  pages, keeping his spirit alive. God also called the Murphys back to China, so they ventured across the world three more times to bring His amazing children into their hearts and into their home. In 2016, when they were given signs that it was time for their own personal adoption journeys to end, and for a new chapter to  begin, our non profit organization, Open Hearts for Orphans, was created six years after Daniel left for Heaven.
