Our Arizona adoption agency needs your help to deal with a real crisis. As temperatures skyrocket in the Phoenix metro area, tent cities are growing around shelters, in parks, parking lots, and abandoned buildings. The rising cost of living, scorching heat, and the pandemic that continues to impact our most vulnerable communities has created a serious crisis for vulnerable pregnant women. Some women feel trapped between the choice of abuse and homelessness. When a pregnant woman chooses homelessness, she risks an entirely new set of violent dangers.
In addition to the dangers of living on the streets, homeless pregnant women experience complications to their pregnancy at twice the rate of securely housed pregnant women. They are at higher risk for alcohol, opioid and non-opioid drug use disorders as well as anxiety and depressive disorders, miscarriages and complications during childbirth.
The baby is at greater risk for premature birth, low birth weight, being born addicted, respiratory illnesses, and longer hospital stays. According to the American Pediatric Association, these risks continue into childhood.
There is no doubt that heat, rising cost of living, pandemic, and domestic violence all converging at the same time create a true crisis for vulnerable pregnant women. We simply must reach out to these desperate pregnant women and offer solutions. They need to have safe, stable housing, access to medical care, nutritious food, and counseling to assist them in moving forward in a positive way. They feel trapped, hopeless and helpless. They don’t know that our Arizona adoption agency can have them off the streets within hours. Each pregnant woman in crisis deserves to know that if they are unable to parent with their current circumstances, that adoption is a beautiful option. A healthy mom, a healthy baby, a family blessed with adoption, and a bright future for the birth mother is all possible with the help of Building Arizona Families and the Donna K. Evans Foundation.
This truly is a crisis. Can you step up for vulnerable pregnant women and their fragile unborn baby? Every dollar you contribute will help us reach a pregnant woman in crisis. On average, it costs us $127 to reach one pregnant woman, but please know that every dollar counts in meeting this urgent need. With homelessness and heat rising, the dangers increase for birth mom and baby. Your gift of any amount is tax deductible. Please forward the newsletter to friends and family who will join us reach these vulnerable pregnant women in crisis.
Saving and changing lives together,

ONE PRECIOUS BABY ADOPTED IN MAY
During the month of May, Building Arizona Families placed one newborn with a wonderful adoptive family. Our Arizona adoption agency has hundreds of families from around the U.S. waiting to adopt Arizona babies, and hundreds of pregnant women in crisis that don’t know we can help. It’s why we need your most generous gift to help us reach the growing number of pregnant, homeless women in our state.
birth MOther adoption stories
At the age of 14, Cheyenne started selling crack on the street corners at 4am. She grew up in a family of addicts so life seemed normal. She was homeless, pregnant, and was an addicted child herself. The realities of her story are heartbreaking, but the good choices she has made in moving forward to a brighter future remind us of how important it is to reach out to the streets of Arizona and find the addicted, broken women who live there. Every mom and unborn baby on our streets need us to care, because they don’t believe anyone really does. Our Arizona adoption agency has helped hundreds of pregnant women in crisis over the years, and we need to help hundreds more.
