It’s been a year and a half since we brought Emily home, almost two years since we first saw her picture. It seems like yesterday I was running around filling out paperwork and making trips to UPS. Wow, how time flies!
God has continued to stir my heart for adoption and foster care over the last year and a half. This Christmas season I have decided to organize a book drive for foster children. There are over 400,000 children in foster care in the United States. Often many children, especially older children, sit waiting in a social worker’s office while they work to find a foster family for the child.
I am collecting donations for the local office that handles foster care cases in Kansas. These donations will purchase new books for children to engage with as they sit and wait.
Usborne Books & More will match 50% of donations once $250 are raised. I have set a goal of $500, which means UBAM would match with an additional $250 in books.
Would you be interested in donating $10, $20 or $30 to help put books in the hands of foster children?
I have set a up donation web site here: https://www.youcaring.com/kvcfosterkids-1030829
