The BAF Domestic Adoption
December 2022 Newsletter
From the Desk of Kelly Rourke-Scarry, President and CEO On behalf of the entire staff at Building Arizona Families, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours! We hope it is filled laughter and joy! In December, we always look back before we look forward. We are so thankful for sharing in the very best gifts that are given throughout the entire year. The gift of adoptive families who hold their long-awaited newborn in their arms and courageous birth mothers who give the gift of life! And, for the birth mother, she is gifted a life-changing turning point – an opportunity to get free of addiction, go back to school, be freed from an abusive relationship, or other positive opportunities she embarks upon. While 2022 was certainly not without its’ challenges, we look back with gratitude for the privilege of sharing in so many life-changing gifts with people we truly care about. We look forward to 2023 with great hope for expanding the number of lives we are able to touch through the miracle of adoption. And, as always, we are so grateful that you understand the profound impact adoption has on so many lives, and that you care so deeply about the miracle of adoption. I invite you to be a part of reaching more pregnant women in crisis. It costs approximately $140 to reach each woman, as many are homeless. Please consider a year-end gift as you join us in changing so many vulnerable lives in 2023. It is tax-deductible and life-changing for the unborn baby, birth mother, and the adoptive family!
Thank you again for caring. I hope your holiday season is wonderful!
All the best,
Kelly Rourke-Scarry, President
