Children Waiting for Families

In my state of Texas there are over 4,000 children and youth in foster care waiting on adoptive families.

And there are roughly 25,000 churches in our state.

The math isn't hard. We can fix this!

Sure adoption is not easy, but so, so worth it!

I sat at an adoption-event lunch yesterday and heard a story about a boy that had aged-out of the foster care system at age 18 without ever being adopted although he had been eligible for adoption for several years. He joined the military and was deployed to Iraq. Upon arrival in Iraq the soldiers were all given one phone call to call their family back home and let them know they'd arrived safely. This young man had no family to call. He called his old caseworker. Thankfully she was there and answered the phone, but how sad that the boy didn't have someone that hadn't been paid to be a part of his life to call in that moment!  A mom or a dad.

If you are in the Houston-area, consider coming to this conference on April 27th.

If you are not in the area, check out to find out how you can make a difference!

Until every child has a family. . .
