I get several emails a week asking me “What can I do to help forward the adoption movement? Usually, that sentence is prefaced with one of the following disclaimers.
- I’m 15.
- I’m 75
- I’m incarcerated.
- I’m moving to Bog0ta.
OK, #3 has yet to happen, but you get the idea. These are people who love adoption and get the connection to being pro-life. Until now, it’s been hard to connect them.
Not anymore. The Zoe Foundation has announced the Make the Tracks project.
For years, we’ve talked about adoption as a sort of underground railroad, moving children from a place of danger to place of safety. The underground railroad that undergirded the abolitionist movement during the days of the slave trade did just that – and was coordinated by volunteers who gave what they had. Very few took slaves all the way from the deep South to freedom. Most of them took their charges just a little further down the road.
Join is in laying tracks – committing to $3 (or more) a month toward the adoption movement. It’s simple…and can you tell me to the dollar what you spent last month? Probably not. You know that that means? You’ll never miss the $3.
Can $3 make any difference?
It can if enough people surrender a latte a month. It can certainly help us fund grants, get necessities for birth moms, and spread the word through free resources like the podcast.
It’s doable. If you’re 15. If you’re 75. Or if you’re in Bogata.
