Are you adopting a family for Christmas?
This Adopt a Family for Christmas blog is your resource for adopting a family for Christmas. Every Christmas there are many families and children that need to be adopted.
How to Adopt a Family for Christmas?
Nearer to Christmas, we will be posting about families that will need your help. If you would like to adopt a family, part of a family or even just one child, you can contact the family directly to make arrangements.
How does 'Adopt a Family Work' work?
Each family seeking help will have their children's wishlists along with ages and preferences. Wishlists are what the children/families need or want but you are not obligated to buy things from the list. Many adoptors choose their own gifts. All families appreciate any gifts they receive.
Looking to get adopted?
If your family need some Christmas assistance, you can post your situation and what you need here on this Blog. We don't guarantee that you will get adopted. Every year, some families get adopted but there are always some that do not. While we make every effort to get everyone who needs help adopted, we appreciate your understanding and patience. Please also know that adoptors can be anyone. They themselves may not be well off so, if you ask for help here, please appreciate anything your adoptors offer.
We have come across families in the past that only want certain things for Christmas and did not want other gifts. If you are looking for something specific, please specify so that potential adoptors are aware of your situation.
We hope that this Blog will help at least some families have a merry Christmas.
