Adoption Ministry Update

I'm in the middle of a HUGE project for work, but wanted to let you all know that the meeting went very, very well. Our pastor definitely realized that there is a big need for this ministry and our next step is to meet with the director of the Children's Ministry, so that we could find a way to be under that "umbrella" instead of starting out on our own. She said that new ministries are far more successful if they can "spin-off" of a more established one.

More updates later and I'd be happy to share our PowerPoint with any who are interested in taking on the same project.

Just had to share the Good News!

And, here are a few quotes to keep you thinking....

"Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever fresh and radiant possibility." -Kate Wiggins

“Without… permanent connections, …children are far more likely than their peers…
to endure homelessness, poverty, compromised health, unemployment, incarceration
and other adversities.”

"Open your mouth for the mute,
For the rights of all the unfortunate.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And defend the rights of the afflicted
and needy." Proverbs 31:8-9

Have a great day, everyone!
