FUND THE VISION 2020

Fund the Vision is a powerful way for you to forward the vision of Antioch Adoptions. As an agency, we are critically aware of the effect that trauma has on the children we serve and the impact this has on the family. We have heard consistently from our families of the need for specialized, trauma-based training and support. $40,000 will allow Antioch Adoptions to:

  • Provide personalized training in homes and support in a classroom settings for parents of foster children with trauma-related issues.
  • Allocate one practitioner to focus on trauma-based training.
  • Replace this practitioner with a much needed case manager.

Hello Antioch Adoptions Family,


First and foremost, your staff at Antioch Adoptions prays regularly for your health and safety. We are well, and to the best of our knowledge the children and families we serve are well noting the pandemic.


I realized something peculiar today. Have you paused to wonder what it would be like to remain in this uncertainty (finances, social distancing, etc) of CoViD-19 for 5, 10, or 15+ years of your life? I presume most of us have not considered this is likely the magnitude of uncertainty the children in foster care (especially temporary placements) face every day of their lives. For them uncertainty of love or rejection, and surely permanency and stability. As such, we cherish your partnership in finding every child a forever home.


The CoViD-19 pandemic created a huge problem for our annual auction. It has significantly threatened to cause a cancellation of this year’s auction. However, by God’s providence we have decided to conduct this year’s auction as an “Online Auction”. Prayerfully, our auction software is capable.


I first want to address those who have purchased individual tickets or are table hosts for this year’s auction. Many thanks to you who have already purchased tickets or sponsorship packages. Because of this unfortunate situation, we ask that you please consider your ticket purchase/sponsorship package as a donation for this year’s auction. If not, we are more than happy to issue you a refund. For those donating their tickets toward our goal of $150,000, we will issue you a receipt reflecting your ticket purchase as a donation to Antioch Adoptions.


Soon we will reopen the online auction catalog. You will have a chance to investigate all the fabulous items. However, we plan to open bidding on May 14th thru May 21st for silent & live items, as well as Fund the Vision and other auction related items. If you haven’t already, you will also have to request an auction bidding account. Click here to do so immediately.


We have no doubt the change to an online event will be challenging. We are deeply committed to our goal and pray you are ready to pursue it with us. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call the office at (425) 558-0921 or email foreverfamily@antiochadoptions.org.


In Him,

Ezechiel Bambolo, Jr., Executive Director

In these trying times, James 4:8 – “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you…

Change a child's life

Antioch Adoptions is a non-profit, private adoption agency whose mission is to place orphaned foster children, regardless of ethnicity, age, or special needs, into Christian adoptive homes, and to remove barriers to adoption, especially financial, which is why we do not charge adoption fees to our families.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN ADOPTING?

If you are considering foster-adoption and live in King, Pierce, or Snohomish counties, we'd love to potentially be a part of that journey with you. Did you know that finances do not have to be an issue with adopting? We have Christian resources available to walk you through the process. Click HERE for more information.


HELP SUPPORT FOSTER CHILD ADOPTIONS

Since 2001, hundreds of former foster children have been able to celebrate their birthdays with their adoptive forever families!  As Antioch Adoptions seeks to find permanent, loving homes for every foster child, we need your financial support.  We do not charge fees for our adoption services. We rely solely on private donors to support our work with these children and families.



BECOME INVOLVED BY VOLUNTEERING

We are always looking for compassionate people who want to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable children, the orphans. We hold fundraising events and marketing blasts, and we are always in need of help in many capacities. We can especially use help from those who have social media savvy, website design experience, and graphic design knowledge. 

Click HERE - we need you!


SPREAD THE WORD!

As a small non-profit, we rely on our community to help us get our message out to potential adoptive families and supporters. Ask your church leadership to have us speak at your church or Bible study group. With social media, you can help by liking and sharing our posts on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram. Join our email list to stay informed of all the new families created through adoption, our latest news, and how we're making an impact on the adoption world!  Join the list HERE


PRAY FOR THE CHILDREN

Prayer is a powerful thing. The foster children we help have been through a life changing trauma. Many come from neglectful, abusive living situations, then they are taken away from their siblings and their homes, as they are sent away into foster care. Your prayers for these kids, and for an adoptive family for them, are an enormous blessing. We know God answers prayers. We are reminded every time we place a child into the loving arms of their new family. 


Become a part of making family a reality for every child!


ADOPTION CHANGES LIVES

There are over 10,000 foster children in the state of Washington alone. Almost 3,000 of them are waiting to be adopted right now. Our goal is to find forever families for all of them, and we need your help.
