"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
The Amaris Home Project
"Given by God"
In our work with members of the foster care and adoption triads, we have discovered that they have many needs. These needs may be material such as safe housing, food or transportation for a woman contemplating adoption. It may be school supplies, back packs and clothes for a foster child or respite care, summer camps and extra-curricular activities for adoptive families. Birth and adoptive families and foster children may also have emotional and spiritual needs including the need for counseling, guidance and support. We strive to provide for whatever needs they may have during such a challenging time. Like the verse in Jeremiah proclaims, He knows the plans he has for us, which includes the gifts of hope and a future. We want to provide expectant parents with a sense of hope and a future while helping them make a life-affirming choice for their baby.
Our Amaris Home Project provides assistance to expectant mothers by providing confidentiality, safety and compassion. With the assistance of staff and volunteers, expectant mothers are given emotional support, spiritual guidance and non-judgmental advice. They have access to support services including professional counseling, health care, educational services, job seeking services, parenting classes and support in other identified areas. Whether they decide to parent their baby or place the child for adoption, they will be respected for their life giving choice for their baby.
The word Amaris is Hebrew for "given by God" and that is just what we believe our Amaris Home Project is to us. A gift given by God to enable us to help expectant mothers make a loving choice for their babies. Not only is it a gift to us but also to the expectant mothers who will benefit from being able to find support while making these decisions. It is also a gift to the baby to be able to be provided with nurturing, safe and loving care while his or her mother is awaiting delivery. It is a gift to the adoptive families who may be blessed with caring for the child in the future. And, most importantly, it is the "gift of life", given by God, to these little babies.
