Wait No More®:
Finding Families for Waiting Kids
Right now, more than 104,000* legal orphans in United States foster care are waiting for adoptive families. The US also has more than 300,000 churches, and God has given clear commands for Christians to take care of His orphan children.
So if the command is clear and the need is apparent, why are these kids still waiting?
At Focus on the Family, we believe that every child has the right to have a family. That’s why we’re collaborating with adoption agencies, church leaders, and ministry partners to raise awareness of and recruit families for those waiting for permanent families.
Through one day events and targeted marketing campaigns, Focus on the Family is highlighting the urgent need for adoptive parents. For too long, these children and youth have been overlooked.
But that is changing. God is stirring the hearts of His people to welcome these children and youth into forever homes. To date, more than 1,900 families have initiated the process of adoption from foster care as a result of the collaborative efforts of Wait No More. And this is only the beginning.
Recent and upcoming Wait No More event locations include:
Houston, TX: Saturday, April 27, 2013 at Houston’s First Baptist Church
Dallas, TX: Saturday, June 1, 2013 at One Community Church
Orlando, FL: Saturday, August 24, 2013 at First Baptist Orlando
