Baby seeks a family.



Got this today from The Shepherd's Crook Ministries. Maybe it's meant for you?

Late next month, a fifteen-year-old birth mother in Florida is set to give birth to a baby boy who has been diagnosed in utero with a mild case of spina bifida. There have been several sonograms done to examine the baby, and the hole in the spinal column looks to be very small and at the very lowest point possible. So far, no fluid has been collecting on his brain, and a second MRI is scheduled to take place soon to make certain of that.

The birth mother is going to be selecting the adoptive family, and she is quite concerned that the family that adopts this boy be a “strong, actively involved” Christian family. Interested families have been asked to submit a family profile, which is to include pictures, a letter to the birth mother, and some basic information about the family. As far as fees are concerned, we have been told by the agency that “there is a $150 application fee, a $2500 Social Service fee up front & our Placement Fee (at time of placement) is a ‘sliding scale’ based on income: 13% not to exceed $12,500.” The agency is also planning to apply for SSI approval for the adoptive family. Family profiles may be submitted, and further information may be requested by writing to florida-baby-boy-info@theshepherdscrook.org.

Oh Andi, I wish I could have that baby boy. I want a baby boy. But my hubby needs a job and we need insurance first. I so pray that this little guy's family comes forward and just loves the stuffin's out of him.

I think this birth mother decided to parent! Unless there is another birth mom with a similar story! Our adoption agency in Florida sent out the news!

Thank you for sharing the information.

The process of adoption is considered as a noble job for those children whose mothers are unmarried or are unable to raise them for certain reasons. Though, now days, there are many agencies that are providing the service of adoption to adoptive parents and also for birth mothers.

There are even many agencies that are providing home study services for adoption, which is helping adoptive parents to raise the adopted children.
