From the Desk of Kelly Rourke-Scarry, MSW
I hope your February has been wonderful! I always think of February as the month of love…a special time to show those around me how much I love and appreciate each of them.
In February, I also pause to remember what I love about MY life…. I love that my biological mother courageously chose life for me. I love that my adoptive family opened their arms to love me and give me a life filled with joy and possibility. I love my own family – husband and children. I love that my husband and family stand with me in the journey to help pregnant women in crisis and unborn babies. And I love what I do – working hard to find birth mothers in crisis who need someone to show them all of the joy and possibility that awaits their baby through the gift of adoption. That is a LOT of love and I am so grateful.
If you are receiving this newsletter, it is because you love the joy and possibility that the gift of adoption brings. What’s so amazing is that adoption is a three-fold miracle. It is a miracle for the baby who is given a bright future. It is a gift for the adoptive family whose arms and heart now hold the precious baby they longed for. And it is the miracle of hope for a birth mother (or father, as you will see in the spotlight), whose life was in crisis and now have the support and wise counsel needed to have a fresh new start at life. I love every part of the adoption miracle!
And every time I see the sweet faces of the babies adopted through Building Arizona Families, the reality of the miracle washes over me all over again. Wow – I am so in love with where and how I am honored to serve, to make a difference in the lives of women, babies, and families around the U.S. It truly is a gift.
As you know, our goal for 2021 is to multiply the miracles!! There are so many pregnant women in crisis and that is where the miracle starts. We need to find them, to tell them that they have a wonderful option – life for their baby and a fresh start for them. Can you help us multiply miracles in 2021? Just $127.00 helps us find one birth mother, and then the miracle begins. How many miracles can you help make happen? I encourage you to choose a miracle goal, and let’s work together to get it done.
Thank you for caring so much. Thank you for walking with us – you are truly joining us in the miraculous work of adoption.
Can you sponsor one miracle? Two miracles? Perhaps you can commit to a miracle a month – wouldn’t that be awesome? Remember that your gift of any amount is tax deductible. And, please forward the newsletter to friends who care about miracles so they can join us in this miraculous work!
As always, I am available 24/7/365 to talk with a women experiencing a crisis pregnancy. Please share my personal cell number. My cell is 623.695.4112. Women can text or call me.
Thank you for being in the struggle with us to save the lives of unborn babies.
Saving and changing lives together,
Building Arizona Families

BIRTH FATHER ADOPTION STORIES
Deshaun and his fiance just moved to Phoenix to start all over. When she found out she was pregnant, it was overwhelming. There was no way they could be parents with everything that was going on in their lives. Abortion was not an option in their minds and then they found out about adoption through Building Arizona Families.
It was a struggle – Deshaun describes how hard it was to place his baby boy with an adoptive family. He also explains how he wrestled through to be at peace with the situation and why he knows his baby has a better life ahead of him now. He believes adoption is the blessing that everyone needed with their pregnancy.

UNDERSTANDING DESPERATION IN ADOPTION
Many women experiencing crisis pregnancies are desperate because they are addicted, homeless and scared to remain on the street, and they are hungry, exhausted, and too cold or too hot. They come into Building Arizona Families because they are pregnant have to find the help they need.
There are many other circumstances that create crisis pregnancies. The pregnancy may be the result of an act of prostitution or abuse. They could be in a domestically violent relationship or are pregnant due to an affair. Other women are divorcing their spouses, still, others discover their pregnancy very late. Some pregnant women in crisis don’t believe in abortion but cannot afford another child. Whatever the reason, learn more about the desperation these women face, and how we can help them experience the miracle of love, joy, and a fresh start.
Please join us in helping to change the lives of pregnant women in crisis who courageously choose to put their unborn child’s life above their own through the selfless choice of adoption. They choose life for their unborn child. Now, let’s help them have the bright future they deserve. Click below to join us in changing lives.
We need sponsors to help cover the cost of the educational outreach. No tax deductible contribution is too small. We also need volunteers! There are also downloadable resources on the website with facts about adoption that you can share with others. Join the You Before Me movement to save the lives of unborn babies and provide a fresh start in life for birth mothers who need encouraging, practical support.
