While our office is catching up from the huge snowstorm last week, I want to make a special mention of the China Waiting Children Program that was able to process over 20 referrals during the time our office was officially closed. Thanks to Melissa, Aimee and the whole team who went above-and-beyond once again. This team has helped complete over 50 referrals since the first of the year!
In many of the states where weâ€™re licensed, we are seeking to add adoptive families to the Board of Directors. If you live in CA, FL, KS, MN, NC, NY, OH, PA, or WA and would be interested in joining the state officeâ€™s Board of Directors, please contact Julia.Norris@awaa.org. This only requires a few hours of commitment a month.
As of late last week, we have another family home from El Salvador â€“ I spoke with the family and offered my congratulations on their new son. Other families are still waiting to be matched and weâ€™re working with the government to make this a reality. I will be traveling to El Salvador and Honduras again at the end of this month to continue to follow-up on the initiatives we have in both countries.
â€œBut when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.â€ -Galatians 4:4-6
