Forever Family Friday – Jamarcus

Happy #ForeverFamilyFriday y’all. Have you ever stopped just for a minute and thought about the fact that adopting a child out of the foster care system is less about getting a child for your family but it is more about giving your family for a child. Read that again if you need to. Children belong in families. It’s a pure and simple fact. Look, not everyone is called to be a foster parent. Trust me…I get it. It’s a little chaotic at times and takes you out of your comfort zone. But you can offer your support and encouragement to those in the fight and these kids are worth fighting for. They are worth the hours and hours spent each week on searching and vetting and praying and writing posts and us annoying you guys to join us in trying to find families for them. Here is a young man that is worth giving your family too. He needs us.

Please allow me to introduce you to Jamarcus. He is 14 years old and lives in Tennessee. He enjoys playing football, quarterback especially, and would like to continue to play when he grows up. He likes basketball as well! His friends would describe him as someone who will not let others down. One thing he would like people to know is that he cares for other people. That melts my heart.

To Jamarcus family means cheering up your kids, putting a roof over their head and clothes on their back. Pretty pure and simple! Can you be that family for Jamarcus? Do you know anyone who could be? Please contact or DM us!

Thank You ❤️

Forever Family Friday – Aron

Sing this song with me… “Jesus loves the little children… all the children of the world…red and yellow, black and white they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.” Most of us sang that song growing up or sing it to our grandchildren now. And these little children of the world…these foster children are precious in His sight and should be in ours as well. They deserve to be loved and feel safe. These little ones are collectively our responsibility! That means everyone, not just someone else, but me and you. We are responsible to nurture and provide for them. Let me introduce you to a young man that needs our support and advocacy.

Aron is 13 years old and lives in Alabama. He enjoys football and baseball. He loves swimming and hopes to go to Hawaii one day! He wants to live on a farm, be adventurous, and learn new things with a family. Aron has a nurturing heart and often wants to be a caregiver for others. That’s the epitome of kindness.

Forever Family Friday – Jasmine and Jacob

We are all aware of organizations, philanthropic groups and even individuals that are in the business of making wishes come. We read about kids that go to Disney or meet a famous person, or sports teams that get new uniforms, or kids that receive scholarships. We see and read about these sweet stories and they make us feel all warm and fuzzy. At least they do me. So today I have wishes from some amazing kids that I would love to be able to make happen. They wish for a stable, loving family where they can stay together. They wish to go to the beach. They wish to simply spend a whole day together with her future family and laugh and eat pizza. All I can say is wow. Guys this is so crazy that in this country kids are wishing, hoping and praying for things like pizza and parents that love them. This list should be a given, not a wish! We can actually right this wrong but it’s going to take all of us pulling the wagon in the same direction. Can you help us make the dreams come true for these kids?

Allow me to introduce Jasmine,14 and Jacob, 9 from Florida. Jasmine is the social butterfly while Jacob prefers to stay in the background. They share a keen love and curiosity for the world and its creatures. Both say their favorite subject in school is science. Jasmine loves marine biology, traveling and learning about other cultures. Jacob says he wants to be a vet when he grows up. Jasmine wants to be the first female president of the United States, and an astronomist, or a football coach! Whoa! All are amazing! Jacob is interested in learning about the solar system and planets, and he also loves music, singing and playing with Legos.
Jasmine and Jacob are kind and empathetic. Jacob is generous and giving while Jasmine is loving and caring. Both imagine a stable, loving family where they can be together. Jacob would like to go to the beach and eat pizza while Jasmine wants to simply spend a whole day together with her future family. Jasmine feels close to God and hopes for a Christian family. How beautiful. Please talk about these kids, share on your social media, lift them up in prayer. ❤️

Forever Family Friday – Deangela

Happy Good Friday…Happy Forever Family Friday and Happy Easter Weekend! That’s a bunch of happy in one sentence. I love Easter and all that it represents. It is a time to celebrate the hope we have. Hope from the resurrection that you can have life from death. Comfort that such beauty can come from heartbreak and tragedy. Because of Easter we can be assured of our future. I am forever grateful for what Jesus did for me and I pray the kids who don’t have a forever family know there is hope. I pray that they know they are loved and valued and their stories can have a beautiful ending. Please allow me to introduce you to Deangela. She deserves a #ForeverFamily and all that comes with it from the fun frenzied egg hunts to a house full of family and friends celebrating their Easter traditions and the resurrection!

Deangela is 14 years old and lives in Arizona. She thrives being in an environment with activities that keep her busy, especially sports. In her downtime she likes to read, listen to music and watch tv. McDonalds, Cold Stone and Barros Pizza are her favorite places to go out to eat. Deangela would benefit from an active and structured family. Routine is important and she likes to have attention. Being a part of family activities helps Deangela to feel included. Can you be that family for Deangela? Any help would be greatly appreciated. And have a blessed Easter! ✝️❤️🐑🕊️💐🐣
