Another significant aspect of the Africa’s Angels website will be adoption guidelines. With thousands of African children being orphaned each year due to AIDS, the resulting overflow of parentless children is too much for local families to bear. International adoption is an important alternative for helping orphans who suffer as a result of a shortage of willing domestic adoptive families. The goal of this portion of the site will be to give families from any country information on how to pursue an adoption from various African nations. At this time the site will focus on adoption guidelines and contacts for orphans in South Africa and Kenya. In time, however, the goal is to expand to include information on other African nations in need.
