It has been a LONG time since we have posted on our blog. In fact, it looks like it has been 2 years to be exact. There is a good reason...I promise!
Roughly around that time I decided to go back to school to get my social work degree in order to move things along with our organization. Needless to say, homework, full-time schooling, and raising a family, has kept me very busy from attending to our blog. BUT, that doesn't mean we haven't been busy working on our organization. In fact, it is the exact opposite.
Over the past couple of years we have been working hard to build our grassroots organization into something strong. Something great. Something that adoptive and foster parents NEED! We have still been working tirelessly at becoming a licensed adoption agency, but that is now out of our hands. Now we wait to find out if our license will be approved and if we can finally make a new type of adoption agency.
But we want so much more.
If we do get licensed, and if we don't licensed, we want to support adoptive and foster families to the best of our ability. We want to offer services free of charge that will support and equip parents who have made this choice to raise children, often from hard places. Currently we offer phone support, support groups, info sessions, and workshops, in order to support families. We are working towards creating many new programs, such as counseling, play therapy, mentorship, immigration support, respite lists, private post-adoption assistance and more. We will lay out our services as we develop them, but know that we are working hard to create what you need.
How can you help?
Let us know what services you would like to see! What help you wish you had, or desire to have to move forward. Consider joining one of our committees, such as fundraising or education, and consider donating to help us reach our goals.
My goal is to include regular posts on here once again and we look forward to getting to know our community and how we can support you!
