Having raised my large family and retiring from being the social worker/counsellor at a local primary school, I was blessed to join the Board of Naomi’s Joy. Along with my daughter Renee, I have always had a heart for the adoption and care of babies who aren’t able to be raised by their birth mother for whatever reason. It is now a privilege for me to be involved in supporting the very special families who are willing to nurture and love these little ones until they can be adopted into their Forever family.
We provide training in the various aspects of becoming Emergency Safety parents and follow up with ongoing counselling and support through the process. Once a baby arrives, the parents become very emotionally involved with it, even though they know from the start that this is not a permanent placement. It is therefore important to prepare for the parting as the time draws near, with counselling and support in prayer from all our Naomi’s Joy family.
It is our greatest joy to see these beloved precious little souls blending in to their new family and bringing and receiving blessing and all which that entails. This is the fulfilment of our Mission.
