Yesterday we attended the OJC (Orphan Justice Center) family meeting. It was a meeting for adoptive families (those in process or preparing to adopt), as well as others called “Family Support Staff” who have committed to getting along side these families to support them in the process. We are blessed to have Family Support Staff assisting us as a family. These are individuals who have a heart for the orphan and adoption, but are not yet able to adopt. Serving in this way is a practical expression of James 1:27 for them, and we are so blessed to have them supporting us!
The goal that OJC has for our family is to provide daily help for Emma and Aiden, especially with any therapy (OT, PT, ST, etc) that is given to them to help in their development, as well as help with other household needs, and provide John and I with a date night (mandatory for OJC families!!!).
Over the next month or so, I will be introducing you to these wonderful individuals who have stepped up to the plate to help our family love and care for our children.
We are so blessed to be part of a community of believers that truly desires to walk out James 1:27!
