Happy Thanksgiving!  On behalf of the entire staff at Building Arizona Families, we wish you and yours the happiest of Thanksgiving celebrations.  We are so thankful that you care for unborn children. It’s because of you that newborn babies are in the arms of grateful adoptive parents this Thanksgiving.  And, it’s because of you that birth mothers have had a chance at a new, brighter future through the Donna K. Evans Foundation.  Babies, adoptive families, and birth mothers – so many lives changed for the better this year because of you.  Thank you.

This has been a difficult year for so many reasons.  We know the challenges have impacted everyone, and we are grateful that you have walked beside us as we have tackled one hurdle after another to help pregnant women in crisis who are unable to parent, walk them through the courageous, selfless choice of adoption, and match them with a loving forever family.  The holidays are very difficult for pregnant women who are homeless, addicted, abused, or otherwise in crisis.  Please join us in getting the word out that help is available and that adoption is such a wonderful option.

Forward this newsletter to a friend!  It will also be posted on our social media sites for you to share on your profiles.  We want pregnant women in crisis to know we are here to help.  Building Arizona Families provides practical help, emotional support, and even support after the baby is placed for adoption.  Be sure to share that I am available 24/7/365 to talk with a women experiencing a crisis pregnancy.  Please share my personal cell number.  My cell is 623.695.4112.  Women can text or call me.  And, women experiencing crisis pregnancies can find out more about the practical and emotional support we provide HERE.

Saving and changing lives together,

During the month of October, Building Arizona Families placed five newborn babies with wonderful adoptive families!  Each baby represents the triple miracle of adoption with at least three lives touched with every adoption.  The gift of life for the baby, the gift of a newborn baby to an adoptive family, and a bright, positive future for a courageous birth mother through the help of the Donna K. Evans Foundation.  At least FIFTEEN lives transformed forever in October – and we are so thankful!

Anika Just Couldn’t Parent Another Baby

You may shed a few tears as you listen to Anika’s story.  Placing a baby for adoption is never easy, but placing two babies when you didn’t want to place any was so difficult for Anika.  Listen as she shares a bit of her life, and tells about her son who wondered why the baby couldn’t come home to be with him.  Then Anika finds herself truly alone, parenting her son and facing another unexpected pregnancy.  She didn’t want to place this unborn boy for adoption, and couldn’t bring herself to make a decision until the time the baby was born. Learn about what changed her mind,  and both the pain and joys of a birth mother placing children she loves into the arms of another family.  Be sure to have tissue on hand.

Watch Anika’s Story Here


First and foremost, the perception or notion that adopting is difficult is a hurdle that you have to overcome. When you hear stories of people saying, “Oh, I’ve been trying to adopt for years. My grandmother’s sister’s mother’s aunt’s sister, she had an experience where they took the baby back, and so-and-so knows somebody who is pregnant and we wanted to adopt that child, but it didn’t work out.” I think unfortunately, in the adoption community and in society, people focus on the negative stories. They negative stories get more attention than the positives, because the majority of adoptions are successful. If they weren’t, we wouldn’t be doing this. That’s like saying, with heart surgery, if the doctor only was successful 20% of the time, you wouldn’t be lined up to get a coronary bypass, you would find a different doctor.

Find out the facts about the adoption process and how easy it can be to adopt.  Don’t let hearsay be your guide.
