Want to bless foster and adoptive kids?

You can best help children in foster care and adoption by supporting their families. A meaningful way to make an impact, is to consider donating a gas gift card. They are used to provide transportation to birth family visits. Cards can be in any denomination and to any local gas station. Your donation can safely be dropped off at ICA. Visit our website at: 4achild.org for the office nearest to you.

😊💗What a fantastic #WaitNoMore event this past Saturday at Harvest Christian Fellowship. Thank you, so much for inviting us! We especially appreciate the opportunity to speak to a "packed" room for the adoption breakout session. What a blessing it was to join you, the volunteers, and the other organizations in our efforts to prepare hearts and homes for children in California foster care.

We certainly are in good company! It's our prayer that all families interested in foster care, adoption from foster care, and adoption feel loved, encouraged, and supported.

Hi friends, check our latest ICA Blog post. Written by one of our parents, we pray that her honest and heartfelt adoption story blesses and encourages you today.

“To those of you just beginning your adoption journey, please don’t let this discourage you. I pray that you feel a new sense of anticipation for yourself. God is doing a work in YOU as well. He will be there on the hard days. He will be there to celebrate with you when He makes clear to you who He needs you to be a forever family to.
To those in the waiting I say hang in there. Know that it’s not wasted time and that there will be an end to the waiting. We are in good company. There are many examples in scripture of waiting. Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Joshua, Caleb and Noah to name a few. It is never wasted time.”
“As so, after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.” Heb 6:15
