Kelly Putty is the Founder of Ordinary Hero. Her love for Ethiopia was at first for the adoption of her son. When she arrived in Ethiopia to bring her son home with her, her heart was troubled that she had to leave the other orphaned children. She knew she had to do something more. She committed to advocate for each child, so they would all get adopted. The children did all get adopted, eventually. This was the moment when an ordinary person had the ability to change a child's life forever.
What started as a mission to get orphans adopted, became a journey to find families for orphans and much more. Ordinary Hero partners with various ministries in the poorest communities in order to empower ordinary people to adopt a child in need.
