Irving, TX – The 2012 Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Conference is only two weeks away, but there is still room for more — so make plans to attend on Saturday, October 27, 2012, at Irving Bible Church.
Adoption. Foster Care. Global Initiatives. The annual Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit VII will be held at Saddleback Church in Southern California on May 3-4, 2012.
ABBA Fund will be represented along with many other Christian orphan care organizations. Participation is open to anyone interested in God’s calling for us to care for the orphan.
In addition to more than eighty breakout sessions, speakers include Francis Chan, Dennis Rainey, Rick Warren, Russell Moore, Dr. Karyn Purvis, and Jedd Medefind, the President of the Alliance. Steven Curtis Chapman, Geoff Moore and other musicians will also minister through stories and music.

The Joint Council on International Children’s Services is notifying families about the opportunity to complete a survey about your intercountry adoption experience. This survey will inform policy makers on adoptive families’ experiences when interacting with U.S. government officials during the intercountry adoption process. This is a chance for you to provide input and your candid answers are appreciated.
