DAY 21:  Foster Care and Adoption

Day (21)

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. – James 1:27 (NLT)

OBSERVATION: The CALL is an organization that recruits, trains and supports foster care families in Union & Ouachita County. Currently (report July 2020) Union County has 55 children in foster care. There are a total of 20 foster homes in Union County registered with the State to care for them (12 of these homes were recruited by the CALL). Family recruited and/or supported by The CALL foster homes are caring for 26 children. For more information about the CALL contact Karen Hicks, Union County Coordinator at 870-904-0581.

PRAYER: Father, thank You that You reached out to us, through Christ, when we were orphaned and all alone and adopted us into Your family, gave us a name and a forever home with You! Help us reach out with Your love to boys and girls who have no home and provide the love and nurture that they need to grow and flourish in You. Thank You for organizations like the CALL who provide training and care for foster families who answer Your call to provide foster care for children who so desperately need it. Thank You for those families who adopt children in foster care and show the world the greatest example of what You have done for us! We offer up this prayer to You…until no child is waiting! Amen.
