A State Wide Ministry

I can't believe it didn't cross my mind to post this.  Covenant Care Adoptions is a ministry that my husband and I know, believe in, and support.  Back at the beginning of the year I baked 14 (2 of which didn't turn out "right" so my friends enjoyed them) cheesecakes for their annual Ladies Night Out in Warner Robins.  The really, really, really cool thing about those cheesecakes is it didn't cost me a dime to make them which meant that it didn't cost the ministry anything!!!  (Thanks to friends with coupons.)

Covenant Care Adoptions is a Christian Adoption Agency that has Case Workers all over the State.  One of the main reasons I love this ministry so much is the fact that they pour time, energy, and resources into the birth mothers before, during, AND after the adoption process!  They don't just thank her for the baby and drop her like a hot potato.  I know several families who have adopted through CCA.  I also know the Director of the ministry, the Chairman of the Board, and several other board members and staff.  These people LOVE...people.  They love and encourage couples dealing with infertility, they love all the women who call or come in who are experiencing a crisis pregnancy, and most of all they love those little unborn babies.  This ministry is the REAL DEAL.  Here is what made me bring it up:

Covenant Care is hosting a Photo Contest fundraiser and we need YOUR help! Each child participating was placed in his/her forever family through the adoption ministry of Covenant Care. Look at the faces of these thriving children! Votes will be taken until midnight this Sunday night (June 20th). Each $1 donated in honor of one of these children equals a vote. Votes are unlimited!
Here’s where YOU come in.
If just 500 CCS contacts donate $10, and each of those 500 contacts gets 5 of their friends to donate $10, then we could jointly raise $30,000 for the ministry of adoption with just a few clicks!
What could $30,000 do?
$20 – Cover the cost of a meal for a CCS caseworker and a birth mom who is pregnant and longing for direction, peace and support
$50 – Cover the cost of a post-placement meal shared by a CCS caseworker, adoptive family, birth family, and child that brings reassurance and joy to a birth mom’s decision to place her child with the family she has chosen
$100  - Cover the cost of a car seat used by CCS to transport newborns from the hospital to home!
$300 – Cover the cost of  a birth mom attending CCS’s statewide retreat for women who have made an adoption plan
$20,000 –  Sponsor the investment CCS makes in each step leading to a child being placed in a 2-parent, Christian home 
So, will you help? Will you share this post, put it on your blog, pass the word to your contacts???? Let’s affirm these beautiful families and honor the choices made by their birth mothers represented in this Photo Contest!
P.S. Here’s a picture of one of the babies who was placed in his forever family this month because of your support!
