Even though these have been challenging times, I wanted to share two quick stories with you from Easter weekend.
Kia, one of our long-time clients called because she had just moved into a new home. Her utilities were shut off, and she lost an entire freezer full of food for her and her eight children. Kia was desperate and didn’t know what to do. One of our supporters had reached out earlier in the day to see if there was anything she could do to help. The next day, this supporter met our social worker at our office with bags full of food, including Easter candy and toilet paper, and a Walmart gift card. Our social worker was able to drop it off at Kia’s home on Good Friday. She was overwhelmed and thankful.
Amy was referred to us as she was about to deliver her baby, and she wanted to make an adoption plan. Our social worker was able to connect with her, and she looked at families on our website. She delivered her baby girl on Easter Sunday. We were able to schedule Zoom calls with three families she wanted to “meet” and she chose a family from those calls. The baby was able to go home from the hospital with the family. When Amy was processing with our social worker, she stated “this has been an unsettling experience up until now, because I didn’t know where my baby girl was going to go. Once I met the family, it was clear to me that this is where she belonged, and I have peace about it.”
