August 2023 Newsletter

From the Desk of Kelly Rourke-Scarry, President and CEO

     Wow… temperatures are barely dropping but we are not stopping.  We are thrilled to bring you the latest updates, heartwarming stories, and important news about creating forever families through this beautiful journey called adoption.

     Can you believe that we are celebrating the births of NINE babies in July, including an adorable set of twins!  So, let’s do what I love to call “the adoption math.”   Nine babies, including a set of twins = eight overjoyed adoptive families that had their long-awaited newborn placed in their arms, eight courageous birthmothers who are now receiving the support they need through the Donna K. Evans Foundation to move forward into their fresh starts, and of course, nine newborns who were given the gift of life and a bright future.  8 + 8 + 9 = 25 LIVES CHANGED!  That is EXACTLY why I call adoption a miracle!

     So, please help us reach out to other vulnerable women experiencing crisis pregnancies.  As you know, locating these women and their unborn babies takes on an urgent tone as the temperatures remain dangerously high.  My cell phone is always on, and we tell women to reach out 24/7.   Please help spread the word – take a moment to print out the flyer and pass it out as you see women in need.  Here is the link.

     As always, I am so grateful that you care deeply about the miracle of adoption and the many lives it changes.

All the best,


Kelly Rourke-Scarry

July Babies

In July, we celebrated the birth of nine newborn babies, including a set of twins! Our newborn adoptions have brought immeasurable joy to families across the U.S. Each story is unique, but the common thread is the love and joy that burst forth when a newborn baby is welcomed into their forever families.
