HOW DID SALVATION INTERNATIONAL BEGIN?

A few years back, my husband and I looked into adopting a baby from China…realizing it cost $30,000, we just didn’t have it… Feeling like I still needed to do something, I knew God wanted me to pursue this a little further, so I began to ask myself "How many families get discourage from adopting and don't move further in the process because it costs so much?" So, I decided to start up a non-profit and raise the money through selling of clothing apparel and hosting events and the money we would raise we would give it to families that wanted to adopt, and that is how Salvation International began. – Danielle, Founder & President.

WHAT IS OUR MISSION AND VISION?

Salvation International wants to facilitate and expedite a better life for all children waiting to be adopted.  Our mission is to provide grants to qualified couples and individuals towards their adoption expenses of domestic and international adoptions.  It seems ironic that children wait to be adopted while potential parents struggle to afford the costs of adoption. Our vision is that every child deserves a family.

I grew up in the time of Punky Brewster, Webster, and Diff’rent Strokes. I fell in love with the idea of adoption and promised myself as a young girl that I was never going to have biological kids of my own. I also promised myself I would never get married and I would join the Peace Corps after college but as my idealist self gave away to reality, I got married, never joined the Peace Corps and had three biological children of my own.
I am excited and motivated to help fulfill Salvation International’s vision that EVERY CHILD DESERVES A FAMILY. Each child that we help adopt is a gift to the young girl I was. Salvation International has given me a wonderful opportunity to achieve my dream through these special children and their families!

I was invited to be a board member for Salvation International in 2012.  I accepted because Jason and Danielle Fleenor have a dream to help as many orphaned children find their forever families as they can.  I have never met two people that have such passion for this cause.  There is a need and it becomes greater and greater each day passing.  I strongly believe in helping those in need.  Every child deserves a family. There are so many men and women willing and wanting to complete their families, Salvation International is here to ease some of the financial burden incurred by adoption.  I wanted and needed to be a part of completeing families. I have two beautiful biological children and I cannot imagine my life without them.  Being able to help provide the same happiness and completion to other families is rewarding beyond measure.

 I am a big believer that people come into our lives for a reason, and that each person should be the change they want to see in the world. I can’t say that my life was particularly touched by adoption. That truth shifted when I met Danielle & Jason Fleenor, through our sons. The friendship we formed was instant & genuine. 

After attending several Salvation fundraising events, I was moved by the Fleenor's generosity, and impressed that they saw a need in our world, came up with a plan to make a difference, and put it into action. I became familiar with some of the families Salvation International had helped and their heart-warming stories. It was an honor when Jason and Danielle asked me to join their efforts.  Through this experience, it has been privileged to work alongside some of the most talented, selfless, inspirational people you could ever meet. In doing so, I have been a part of bringing families together, and as a mother of three (biological) children, THAT makes my heart sing! 

I am overwhelmed with gratitude because Danielle, Jason, and Salvation came into my life, allowing me to be a part of making this world a better place by building families through adoption.
