From the Desk of Kelly Rourke-Scarry, MSW
I hope you and yours are doing well, despite the difficult circumstances we have all been facing. We are encountering challenges at Building Arizona Families. These COVID-19 related challenges won’t stop us as we press forward to help women experiencing crisis pregnancies, beautiful babies who need loving forever families, and families who long to hold their newborn baby in their arms. The miracle of adoption is what keeps us going – the unconditional love of babies and those who love them! And COVID-19 can’t stop that.
Impacts to newborn adoption include a slowdown in families interested in adoption, as finances tighten up and uncertainty impacts decision making. Home studies and background check processes also are slowed down. What hasn’t slowed down is the need. In fact, it has increased. The number of women who believe they can’t afford to keep their baby has increased, as has substance abuse, domestic abuse, and homelessness as negative impacts of COVID-19.
If you know anyone who is considering adopting a newborn, please forward this newsletter to them, and give them our contact information. Women facing crisis pregnancies need a positive option that gives life and a future to their baby. Please give women experiencing a crisis pregnancy my phone number. I am so serious about this that I am available 24/7/365 to help pregnant women in crisis. My cell is 623.695.4112 and women can text or call me.
We really do need your help to make sure that unborn babies are given the gift of life and a bright future, that families can be blessed with the miracle of adoption, and birth mothers can have the assurance that they have given their babies the very best gift – life. This is a battle worth fighting for, and we will fight on, despite the challenges.
During these uncertain times, we need you more than ever to roll up your sleeves with us in the battle for unborn babies, fresh starts for birth mothers, and adoptions for families with aching arms and hearts. Your most generous financial contributions to our non-profit organization helps us meet the needs of pregnant women in crisis who have courageously chosen adoption. We provide clothing, transportation to doctor appointments, counseling, food, and even safe housing for these fragile women. Believe it or not, a gift of just $50 would go a long way to help meet these women’s needs. We also need volunteer help – a few hours of help in the office, food pantry, or clothing room would really help. Plus, if you can, we need donations of items that meet the practical needs of the birth mothers – grocery gift cards, phone cards, bus passes, maternity clothes, and non-perishable food to replenish the food pantry. The need is great – please join us as we work to rescue, save, and bless lives – it’s a work of love and we can’t fail. To help, please reach out to Jennifer by e-mail HERE, or call her at 623-680-2152. Thank you for becoming a part of the miracle of adoption.
Saving and changing lives together.
All the best,
Building Arizona Families
