Kaycee and her husband Pete love three things: Jesus, kids, and stories. (Also, each other. Obviously.) For a long time, they have dreamed about how to change the narrative around adopting from foster care, especially within faith communities. In the spring of 2016, they were inspired by a ministry called America’s Kids Belong, and they started dreaming about a ministry that told the stories of kids who need families. Five months later, Reel Hope was born.
Reel Hope started in September of 2016 with one mission: A forever family for every child.
We knew two things:
- God cares about kids who need families.
- There’s nothing more powerful than a story.
So we set off to tell the stories of Minnesota kids who are waiting to be adopted. We started making two-minute profile videos of these kids and sharing them with the world.
