Holiday Giving: Preserve Families and Prevent Unnecessary Adoption Loss
Every year at this time we are inundated with donation requests. I know I am. I have in the past used this forum to recommend some good charities like SOS for Children, Feed the Children, UNICEF who help provide for families in crisis and thus avoid them being snatched by baby brokers or "well-meaning" missionaries.
This year I am very pleased to share a very special and unique giving opportunity that will help support 5 mothers and 16 children who have been saved from the adoption industry....and hopefully provide enough funds for Lynne Johansenn to continue this most valuable work.
Every year (as applicable) I also award a Family Preservation Hero of the Year Award. And this year it goes to Lynn Johansenn:
I commend Lynn for putting her beliefs into action! I personally housed two moms keeping them and their chidren from becoming victims of adoption rhetoric. Their stories are told in The Stork Market, chapter 9: Preserving Parenthood, pages 163-170. Also on those pages is my most proud "save" - the rescue of the toddler found in the squalid Steinberg NYC "house of horrors" where illegally adopted Lisa was murdered after years of abuse. In addition to reuniting hundreds of families, these are my proudest moments! Not all of us are blessed with the opportunity to be able to physically rescue families in needs, but we can give $5, $10 or $100 to help these families and others like them.
Please donate as you are able. It will make YOUR holidays brighter as well as theirs.
