About Us

Mission Statement

Small World, as a Christian ministry, exists to support parents through the difficult decision of parenting or placing their child for adoption and to preserve and protect the lives, born and unborn, of orphaned, abandoned and unwanted children, by looking after them, and ultimately restoring them as sons and daughters in loving Christian families.

How We Began

Small World Adoption Agency was founded by Jim and Jean Savley. Learn how the agency was started and the personal history the Savleys have with adoption.
