Hey Y’all. You know adoption and foster care are never far from my mind and I’m not shy about spreading awareness about God’s directive to us in James 1:27:
However, God doesn’t say we have to foster. He doesn’t say we have to adopt. He DOES say we have to DO something; and these days. there are so many wonderful avenues in which you can DO. And in optimal situations, the word foster or adopt won’t be introduced into the family unit because resources will be used to provide families with what they need to stay together.
I’ve teamed up with @lovishly to gift this beautiful bracelet to one of you in a giveaway!
The piece says “MAMA” and supports an organization called Abide Family Center Uganda. Abide is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to empowering vulnerable families to keep their children home and out of orphanages.
Over 80% of the children living in orphanages in Uganda have at least one living parent. These children are being raised away from their families because of poverty, not because they are unloved or unwanted. At Abide we believe children grow best in families and so we fight everyday to help families go from barely surviving to thriving and to prevent family separation. – From AbideFamilyCenter.org
They do this by providing medical care, housing, food relief, and education; all for the sole purpose of allowing mothers to be mothers to their children. This “Mama” piece was created as a way for @Lovishly to come along Abide, declaring with them that children belong in families!

Tomorrow evening their adoption and foster care jewelry line will launch! Tune back in tomorrow evening and I’ll announce the winner of this beautiful MAMA bracelet as well as share a special discount code for you to use to shop for some special goodies. Every purchase gives back.
