Inspired by the powerful true story, Sound of Hope follows Donna and Reverend Martin as they ignite a fire in the hearts of their rural church to embrace kids in the foster system that nobody else would take. By doing the impossible–adopting 77 children–this East Texas community proved that, with real, determined love, the battle for America’s most vulnerable can be won.

As a Movement Partner supporting this film, America’s Kids Belong is encouraged by the opportunity to raise awareness of the need for more foster and adoptive families for kids in foster care, including the adoption-eligible children who are a part of our I Belong Project.
