We know some families in the Nashville area who have made room in their homes by adopting children from African orphanages. We wanted to find out more, and that's how we learned about Gwen and Suzanne. They call themselves "two moms who love orphans" and met when they were both in the process of their first adoption. Today, between the two families they have 13 children. And together, Gwen and Suzanne founded 147millionorphans.com, a site dedicated to raising awareness of the millions of orphaned children worldwide.
