As we prepare to enter into 2019 it is our hearts desire that we would be able to continue to be as transparent as we possibly can.

Over the next two weeks we are seeking to raise $100,000 to build up and establish the work we are doing in three primary areas:

  • Reception & Rehabilitation

  • Reunification & Adoption

  • Long-Term Care

It is our hope that over these next weeks we would be able to show you clear window into our daily work. We want to be able to communicate with transparency,...

SCH has had 13 emergency admissions to the hospital so far in 2018.

We’ve accrued a total of 100 days and counting of ICU care. That’s over 3 full months of critical medical care that our children have received. And this says nothing of the many Emergency room visits that did not end in admission. Or the times that children were recommended for treatment in the general ward but were able to come home and be successful cared for by our staff nurses. 

It’s sometimes hard to see t...

I grew up with 3 older sisters, who are now some of my closest friends. But it wasn’t always like that. Growing up as the youngest, I was excluded from a lot of things; pushed into a closet a time or two, and shushed more times than I can count, but it comes with the territory. I often take it for granted until I talk to someone who didn’t have the privilege of growing up with sisters. Though I see it as an advantage, I sometimes forget that my girls in Faith Home have a similar story of sisterh...

It is no secret if you have ever met me that my love for India came slowly. When I first felt called to come to Sarah’s Covenant Homes to be a house mom it was easy for me to fall deeply in love with the photos and the stories of SCH but I felt neutral towards India. I never had a desire to travel through India and my sole knowledge of the culture revolved around an Indian restaurant I had eaten at once when I was younger. After many nights of praying and wrestling with my fears and doubts I fin...

Over the course of our 10 years, we have seen over 40 local and international adoptions. That's over 40 new families! Join us as we hear from the three sets of parents who have adopted children from SCH:

 The Paradinas Family

"We would have to use the word “magical” to describe Urmila (Blog Name: Michele). She is a 4 year old girl adopted from India and is our only child. She was abandoned at birth with significant medical needs, which have since been corrected. She lived 3 years in an orphanage a...

October 4, 2014 is a day that I will never forget. This was the day that I was introduced to a room full of beautiful, silly, resilient, fun and incredibly strong little girls that I would call my foster daughters. I can remember so vividly walking down the long, grey hallway passing room after room until I got to room 9. When we arrived to their room, Sarah and I stood in the doorway while she introduced me to the girls in Telugu, their native language. The girls listened keenly to every word t...

10 kids. That's where it all began for us. Take a look back with us as we reflect on where it all began:


“Prakash is a real joy. He is unaware of his challenge, and laughs out loud at every new thing. He's very active and likes to turn on water taps, throw things up into the fan, etc. What they call a "typical boy"--nonstop on the go. He's comical and endearing.”

Today, Prakash continues to make progress in all areas of his life. He enjoys and is working hard on English reading and writing...

10 kids. That's where it all began for us. Over the course of the next week, we will be highlighting the stories of our first 10 children. Take a look back with us as we reflect on where it all began:


Hope, her real name Bhavishya, recently passed away in 2017.

Sarah wrote this about her once, nearly a year after receiving her into custody: “Hope has a real name that means "future". It's a beautiful name and the meaning is something prophetic that she can really hold onto and we can pray over...

10 kids. That's where it all began for us. Over the course of the next week, we will be highlighting the stories of our first 10 children. Take a look back with us as we reflect on where it all began:


Wendy was 17; she is now 27. In those first days of getting to know her, Sarah observed that: “Wendy is very much a lady--likes to look nice, wear pretty clothing, sit quietly... She had a Christian ayah (caretaker) at the government orphanage, and her face lights up during prayer times or when...

It would be impossible to quantify the number of hours and days that have been spent in prayer over the children of SCH in the last 10 years. Impossible to calculate the volume of time invested by Sarah, house moms, volunteers, staff, and our global supporters dedicated to interceding on the behalf of our amazing children and adults and our organization as a whole. Impossible to label the intervals spent on bended knee, heads bowed in our homes, hospital rooms, churches, and streets.  Impossible...
