BUILDING ARIZONA FAMILIES DOMESTIC ADOPTION JULY NEWSLETTER

Building Arizona Families

From the Desk of Kelly Rourke-Scarry, MSW

Dear Friend,

In all of the years I have been working with women experiencing crisis pregnancies, one thing never ceases to just absolutely floor me.  It’s hard to describe unless you have witnessed it yourself, because it is just too easy to write off a pregnant woman in a tough situation.  “She brought it on herself”, “She’s just another addict,” or “I don’t feel sorry for her, she needs to get her act together”.  There are many other judgments directed at pregnant women in crisis, but there are some common facts that I can share with you.  These women, despite their circumstances, are human beings with deep emotions.  Pregnancy shakes every woman to the core of her being. As life grows inside of her, so does love. Motherly instinct takes over and the desire to protect, to nurture, and to love changes women.

So, back to the one thing that never ceases to amaze me.  It’s selflessness.  Despite carrying her baby for nine months and growing to love this unseen child, then experiencing the pain of labor that is quickly replaced with the joy of a new life, many of these courageous women make the most painful, selfless decision of their lives.  They choose what is best for their baby, despite what their heart tells them.   This beautiful quote expresses it better than I ever could…

A birth mother always puts the needs of her child above the wants of her heart..

I think courage in the face of pain and selflessness birthed out of love needs to be celebrated.

This month we celebrate the courageous women who chose their baby’s future above their personal desires.  I believe these women have earned the right to a fresh start in life, don’t you?

I’m grateful for the courage and selflessness of my own birth mother.  At sixteen, she could easily have made a different choice, and then I would not be writing to you today.  After reuniting with her as an adult, I learned about her love for me and her desire that I have the bright future that she was unable to give me.  As a result of her selflessness, I have been blessed by a wonderful adoptive family, and given opportunities and experiences I would never have had if it wasn’t for her selflessness.

It’s precisely why I launched the Donna K. Evans Foundation – to provide hope and a future for women in crisis who have been selfless enough to put the needs of their baby above the wants of their hearts.  After a woman gives birth and cradles her baby in her arms, she places her tiny infant in the arms of the adoptive family.  When the adoptive family leaves filled with the joy of their new baby, the birth mother is left with empty arms and an aching heart.

The Donna K. Evans Foundation embraces these selfless birth mothers, providing post adoptive counseling and emotional support. We also provide food, clothing, education and training, and much more.

Can you help us provide a fresh start  and bright future for these selfless women? 

The need is so great.

As always, if you know anyone who is considering adopting a newborn, or a women experiencing a crisis pregnancy, please forward this newsletter to them, and give them our contact information.  Women facing crisis pregnancies need a positive option that gives life and a future to their baby.  Please share my personal cell number.  I am available 24/7/365 to help pregnant women in crisis.  My cell is 623.695.4112.  Women can text or call me.

Thank you for your selfless support of courageous birth mothers, and the miracle of adoption.

Yes! I’ll Help Give a Selfless Birth Mother a Bright Future

BIRTH MOTHER ADOPTION STORIES

MEET RACHEL

Adoption

Rachel was homeless. She was a heroin addict.  Rachel had also already had an abortion.

“I had an abortion previously.   I didn’t know I had a choice.  I didn’t know I could choose life for my baby.”

Rachel talks about her baby boy, and the future he has now with his adoptive family.  She also talks about the future she has with the support of Building Arizona Families and the Donna K. Evans Foundation.

What Rachel said is so powerful – “I didn’t know I had a choice”!   There are so many women like Rachel, facing a crisis pregnancy and believing their only option is an abortion. We have to reach them.  We have to tell them about the beautiful option of adoption.  Adoption gives the gift of life.  It gives a family the cherished gift of a baby.  And it gives the birth mother a chance to start life all over, with the support she needs to succeed.

We are so grateful that Rachel chose life for her baby.  Rachel’s baby boy will look back some day at the selfless decision his birth mother made, and be so grateful that she chose life for him. Watch Rachel’s story HERE.

This is exactly why we need to connect with women experiencing crisis pregnancies.
Just think – $107.14 might be all it takes to give a vulnerable baby
the same miraculous gift that Rachel’s baby received.

We need your help to save the lives of precious unborn babies.  We need your help to provide a selfless birth mother the gift of a bright future.  It is the hope she clings to when she places her baby into the arms of another woman that her baby will know as “Mom”.   Please give as generously as you can to help us reach as many pregnant women crisis as we can, and provide the beautiful, life giving miracle of adoption, a new life and a new family.

Thank you – you are changing so many lives and we can’t do this without you.

YES! I’LL SUPPORT THE MIRACLE OF ADOPTION!

The Other Right to Choose

When pregnant women are in crisis, many believe their only choice is to abort their child. The recent “You Know Me” campaign cites 25% of U.S. women as having had an abortion. It is important to note that research indicates at least one quarter of those women believe their abortion did more harm than good, and the majority of women who chose abortion have elevated trauma scores. In light of this sobering reality, The You Before Me movement has just launched to educate women who are unable to parent about the opportunity to choose life through adoption.

In 2014, approximately one million abortions were performed in the U.S., compared to only 18,000 children under the age of 2 being placed with adoption agencies (CDC). Education about available support services for pregnant women in crisis, and information on positive adoption process changes can impact the declining adoption trend reported by the Centers for Disease Control.

The movement’s founder, Kelly Rourke-Scarry, MSW, was adopted at birth. She is profoundly grateful for her life opportunities. Kelly is the co-founder of an adoption agency, Building Arizona Families. It is Arizona’s largest domestic adoption agency providing the emergency resources women with crisis pregnancies need in order to choose life for their baby.  She and her husband Adam have also founded the Donna K. Evans Foundation to serve birth mothers after adoption. The foundation helps provide necessary resources for women to go back to school, find a job, and fulfill their life dreams.  According to Kelly Rourke-Scarry:

“It’s time that we as a state and as a nation celebrate a woman’s right to choose adoption.  It’s time we fight to give women the necessary resources so that they have a choice.  We are committed to helping make that choice possible.  The You Before Me movement celebrates with the courageous women who choose life for their child through adoption.”

Today, many Arizona women who were once addicted, homeless, in abusive relationships, under age, etc. are proud of their choice to put their baby’s life first. Adoption is a positive choice for everyone – the baby, the birth mother, and the adoptive family. It changes lives and futures. It is the positive choice for women who believed they had no choice.
