THEY NEED YOU NOW:
ONE MOTHER’S PLEA FOR THE CHURCH TO EMBRACE ADOPTION
NEW RELEASE by KIMBERLY OFFUTT
I think we can all agree that children belong in families, not institutions. Yet, in the United States, there are over 400,000 children in temporary foster care, and over 58,000 of those children live in residential facilities. Another 100,000 of these children are available for adoption, and they are literally lingering in the foster care system. They are waiting for a family to call their own. Maybe, they are waiting on YOU.
In this book, through the voice of a mother sharing her personal journey to adoption, you will learn:
💜 About the biblical mandate of the believer to care for the orphan
💜 How God used adoption to fulfill His purpose in the earth
💜 Why children enter the foster care system and the many challenges that they face
💜 How you, your church, and your community can change the life of one waiting child
Children in foster care are desperately waiting for a family.
Are you the one?
Sara Blomeling-DeRoo, adoptee and adoptive parent
Raw, real and heartfelt. Kim’s heart cry for vulnerable children can be heard through every page. This is a must read book for every follower of Christ.
Brittney Turner, former foster youth and author of "A Suitcase and a Dream
I wish Mrs. Kim had been a recruiter for me. Maybe I wouldn’t have aged out of foster care. Everyone needs to read this book and take action now. Kids like me deserve a family.
Amber Clingman, former foster youth and founder of a Hope and a Future
I can hear Kim’s voice in every word of this book. She is passionate about finding forever families for children in foster care. I was honored to be one of the former foster kids that she hired for Operation Forever Family. Together, we changed the trajectory of countless children’s lives. This book is for everybody. Kids like me are waiting for people like you to say yes.
Willie Moore Jr., adoptee, founder of Wilflo Foundation, and author of You Belong Here
Kim and I have traveled the world together in our collective effort to find families for the over 100,000 children waiting for a family. She is by far one of the most powerful voices in the fostering to adopt community. Not only does she place vulnerable children in loving homes daily but she has also adopted children as well. Her heart for children is pure and her story is amazing! This book is a God send.
