You can show love by giving your child/youth a sense of connectiveness. What do you do to show love?

Words of affirmation: Compliment something that they are good in?
Acts of service: Cook their favorite meal?
Receiving Gifts: Buy a favorite book, game, or those great new shoes?
Quality time: Help guide your child’s involvement in a sport, church, or club? Spend a day, evening doing a hobby together?
Physical touch: Hugs and pats on the back? Special family handshake?

International Christian Adoptions

We love to hear that you, our community, are praying for children in foster care. Thank you Freida Hall for allowing ICA to share your hope!💛

🙏This morning as a staff, we prayed for our foster and adoptive families and everyone in the process of waiting, to feel encouraged and supported. All families are unique and special, and it’s our mission to hear every child say, “I have a home, I am wanted, and I am loved”. We are trusting that God will continue to allow us to attract more foster families (the right families) to our nonprofit agency. Bless you Freida, for motivating others to listen to the Lord’s voice over ICA and the many children in need.

Community, has the Lord planted this calling in you? Tonight at 6PM, ICA will be holding a no cost casual info meeting, where you can learn how to get involved in all our programs including foster care and adoption. Everyone is invited! Please RSVP call:951-695-3336 or Email: info@4achild.org

Great! 😍 Bella's school was moved completely across town. So we "get to" drive right by International Christian Adoptions, which is on the same block as her school now. Hey, hear me: the desire that our LORD planted deep in your heart... Tend to it... Pray over it... Give thanks for it. It will come to fruition - His Will, His timing. It is a gift to pray over ICA, the children in the foster system and the families who have said 'yes' to fostering/adoption.

What desire has been planted in your heart that you are believing Jesus for? 💙
