I like blogging, have you noticed? I believe it is a very effective way to get the word out to people about what God is doing in the World today.
Here is a blog from adoptuskids.org that is worth reading. If God has ever given you a love for children and you are curious, this is a great place to look around. I am including a couple of past blogs just to show you that many different types of people adopt children.
If you are a single person who is pursuing adoption or foster care and have questions, contact us at 1-888-200-4005 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d love to hear from adoptive families whose journeys were set into motion by seeing a TV or print ad or by hearing a radio spot with the message, “You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent”
Share your stories here! Please tell us when you first heard or saw that ad, why it moved you to act, how you responded, and where your response led you.
We are currently working to create and distribute a new series of public service announcements focused on the large number of teenagers available for adoption in the United States. Look for them on your local TV station this November!
• Families who have experienced challenges in their lives and have handled them successfully are often just the right people to adopt waiting children!
• Families without a lot of parenting experience can parent successfully.
• Working outside the home should not be seen as a deterrent to being good adoptive or foster parents.
• Families coming from all different backgrounds (social, economic) make good adoptive and foster parents.
• Out-of-state families can be good resources for children. These families can maintain contact with former foster families and other relatives of the child despite distance.
• Medical problems, disabilities, and obesity do not necessarily interfere with parenting abilities.
• Parents who are recovering alcoholics or recovering drug addicts and who have been in recovery for a period of time can be effective parents.
• Effective parenting is not dependent on one’s marital status (nor on religious affiliation, financial status, or where the family lives).
