Hello Sharon, I am a 25 year old single male and I am not ready to adopt a child yet. But I do want to make some donations time to time ( food, chocolates, money , toys, clothes) and spend some time with these kids. Rather than spending all my money going on trips and partying, I really want to help theses kids. Unfortunately, I am unable to find any active orphanages in the Baltimore and Howard County areas. Can you please help me out by letting me know a few homes or group homes? Thanks. #2
