Delilah is a public advocate of adoption partly because of her personal experience with the foster care system and partly because her heart was touched by a fact-finding trip to Ghana. She founded a humanitarian aid, a non-profit organization, Point Hope, as a voice for forgotten children everywhere. It is focused on saving lives, providing purpose and restoring hope for foster children in America and refugees and other vulnerable persons in Ghana and Liberia, providing a sustainable helping hand-up instead of a hand-out to these persons.
Point Hope now provides educational support, infant feeding programs, and vocational training in addition to a freshwater program.
Delilah has written four books as per now which are;

- Love Matters
- Arms Full of Love
