"I pick you, you're mine"; we've adopted 11 of 14 children

View descriptionShare

Linny Saunders, mother of 14 children with her husband, have 8 children at home at 62. "God has called us to care for the orphans."  Linny says, "If I was sitting in an orphanage in another country, I would be really wanting a family to come and say, 'I pick you, you're mine'. With that as a motivation, and believing that God's heart is for the orphan, we have adopted 11 of our 14 children." Linny continues, "The church in America for the most part has bought the lie from the enemy that children are a nuisance and a bother.... God's word actually says that the fruit of the womb are His reward."  Linny says about her home with special needs children, "The needs are so great all around us; between foster care and between the orphan crisis, there's millions of orphans waiting. I could not see myself finding any satisfaction in anything but serving the kids that I have, and any other kids that God brings across our path." She talks about honoring and treasuring her family, "People who meet our family just love our kids."
