Our Story


In memory of our late son, Daniel, we've created Open Hearts for Orphans to make a difference in the lives of the Fatherless in three different areas--medical intervention for orphaned children, meeting the basic needs of orphaned children, and providing "Say Yes" adoption grants to families in the adoption process.

How we Serve

James Murphy

We have adopted five precious children and our love crossed oceans to China for all of them. Our first son, Daniel, joined our family in January 2010. He was a beautiful little two-year-old boy living in a Chinese orphanage with a broken heart. Daniel's Chinese name was {is} "Weifeng" which translates to "Great Mountain," and he faced every obstacle with brave determination and a smile on his face. After four months of embracing new life in our family, Daniel's heart surgery took place in May of that year, but much to our sadness, his body couldn't recover from the open-heart surgery that he desperately needed, and he joined his eternal Father in Heaven. Our son made a lasting imprint on many hearts, and Open Hearts for Orphans is the beauty from ashes ministry created to care for orphaned children in his memory. He will not be forgotten, and we give all glory to God for the gift of his life.
