Three years ago, Robin and Randy Bridgeman adopted their daughter, Charlotte, from Korea. Until recently, they had no idea Holt sponsors had supported Charlotte while she was in Korea. When they found out, they were overjoyed — and profoundly grateful.
In this short video, Robin describes how sponsorship helped her daughter become the happy, healthy girl she is today. Why sponsor a child? "Because there are so many Charlottes out there," says Robin. "Every child is equally worthy of love and care and having all of their needs met."
New to Holt International or someone wanting to share the Holt message? Here are several Holt International videos that tell the story of Holt's wide range of services for children.
Holt's Vision A world where every child has a loving and secure home.
Holt's Mission Holt International is a Christian organization committed to expressing God's compassion for children. While always upholding the highest ethical standards, we: • Find and support permanent, loving families for children who are orphaned, abandoned or at serious risk of separation from their family • Provide services to ensure that children will grow and develop to their fullest potential • Lead the global community in advocating on behalf of the world's most vulnerable children
Holt's Child-Centered Approach We believe that every child needs and deserves a permanent, loving family. What is best for every orphaned and abandoned child is, however, as unique as every child. When considering a child's future, Holt always keeps the child's best interest at the forefront of every decision.
Holt International pioneered the modern era of international adoption, but Holt is much more than an adoption agency. We also develop and maintain programs overseas to give orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children safe and nurturing environments in which to grow and thrive. Although our programs take many forms, they all put the welfare of children first.
