Two brothers wish for 2013 - A Family!

Seth and Justin long to have a family to call their own.  Seth is 9 years old and Justin is 7 years old.  This is what their case worker shared about them: 

Seth is a unique and likeable guy, who enjoys playing with his peers. He has a magnificent memory and would be happy to take you on in any memory games. When he is feeling energetic, he likes to go to the park or play with his scooter. During quieter times, Seth indulges in writing and reading. In the third grade, he benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan); he has progressed leaps and bounds recently. Justin is a helpful kid who is very interested in arts and crafts, books, puzzles, video games and Batman. He is a bright boy who does extremely well in the second grade and, like his older brother, really enjoys reading and writing. Justin tends to relate especially well with adults and can be warm and affectionate with those he trusts. If you want to make him feel proud and important, give him a task to do and see the successful product as he beams.

 For more information about these brothers, contact the Adoption Exchange at - 1-800-451-5246  Their case numbers are 9819 and 9820.

Finally Home Foundation - End of the Year Matching Grant

Finally Home Foundation supports foster and adoptive families in a significant way.  Please consider participating in this matching grant.

Dear Friend,
When you invest in foster and adoptive families, your gift will be doubled!
When a child joins a forever family, a journey to health and wholeness begins. It’s hard to deny these realities when families come together for a Family Wellness event, with children who exhibit:
» Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (30%).
» Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (57%).  
» Other children attend with Oppositional Defiance Disorder, plus physical and mental health challenges, caused by trauma and neglect.
These precious families need your help!
Until December 31, your investment in these treasured families will be doubled by a generous $20,000 matching gift from the owners of OtterBox. This means your gift of:
√    $    100 becomes $200
    $    250 becomes $500
    $    500 becomes $1,000, and
    $ 2,500 becomes $5,000.
            When you consider a year-end investment, it’s hard to imagine a stock that could double what you put into it, especially by December 31.  [click here] to give now.
With the partnership from OtterBox, you can become like one of the two faithful servants in Matthew 25:21-23, dramatically increasing what was assigned to them.
            Your response by December 31 also propels the cause of healthy foster-adoptive families – enabling them to attend a Family Wellness Retreat, join a Support Group, or benefit from Scholarships.
God bless you for caring. Your gift of any size, received by December 31, is fully tax-deductible, and matched. To make an online gift, [click here]

Understanding Attachment Disorders

                          Finally Home Foundation -

Finally Home Foundation and Welcome Child Ministry would like to invite you to a lunch reception where David and Carol Boyd will be our guests.

Sunday – Dec. 9th at 11:30 in Room 211 at Timberline Church  Childcare is available during service

David and Carol served with YWAM for 36 years before moving to DC to work with Pastor Dick and Ruth Foth. 

Through their many years with YWAM they gained extensive experience working with orphans around the world.  They are adoptive parents and most recently Carol completed her PH.D. dissertation on attachment disorders.

They have graciously offered to share their experience and expertise with us while they are visiting here in Colorado.

As we gain a better understanding of the challenges that attachment disorders bring to our families, the better equipped we will be as parents.

We look forward to seeing you.  Please RSVP so that we order enough lunch for everyone!
