Amanda Ury, one of the children who has been adopted through Antioch Adoptions, has an amazing life story to tell about her past. Yet, it is the brightness of her future and the aroma of God's glory in it all which captures all of our hearts.
The nature of the foster care and the role Antioch Adoptions plays come together well in this video. I pray you find the opportunity to seek out this great organization and learn how you and those you love can get involved. Maybe it is your business or another social entity you are a part of, either way the need is great.
Children in foster care bounce around numerous homes before ever finding permanency if ever. Upwards of twenty-five thousand (25,000) young adults age out of the United States foster care system every year. The data on the ultimate outcome of these young adult lives is not a beautiful one (trafficking, incarcerations, pregnancies, illiteracy, drug abuse, etc.) Antioch Adoptions' provides fee-free adoptions services aimed at finding every child a forever family (permanency) rather than having to age out of foster care.
