Becoming an Adoption-Friendly Church: 20 Ways to Look After Orphans (Paul Golden, Baptist Bible Seminary) - How does your church “look after orphans in their distress” (James 1:27)?

Navigating Foster Care (Lisa Prather, A Helping Hand and Emily Deitrick, The Bair Foundation) - Not everyone is called to adopt, but we are all called to care for orphans. What about foster care? Is it right for our family? How will having a foster child affect my family? Isn’t it hard to care for a child only have them leave your home after a short time? What are the guidelines and rules for foster parents? How do I know if I have what it takes? We will answer all of these questions and more in the Navigating Foster Care workshop. Lisa Prather is Executive Director of “A Helping Hand Adoption Agency” and Emily Deitrick is the Intake Coordinator for The Bair Foundation.
