Friends and Family -
We're now in year 4 of me reaching out to you with a request for financial support of C2 Adopt's Building Family Ties campaign. As you can imagine, this year's campaign is a particularly important one for the organization.
So much of the adoption process has been slowed or stalled due to this virus: courts are closed, background checks aren't happening and home studies are delayed.
One of the scarier truths is that social workers can't really go into homes right now at a time where their care & intervention are needed more than ever.
Think about this: two of the main sources that alert Child Protective Services of potential abuse have historically been teachers and doctors - two groups of people that most kids aren't seeing much of these days..
Moral of the story, the need for organizations like C2 Adopt is more important in 2020 than ever before. C2 is working hard and thinking creatively to effectively support all of their kids but they need financial support to make it happen.
Clearly, now is a tricky time when it comes to donations. If you're actively looking for ways to help, please consider a donation to C2.
If you're not in a position to give right now, I certainly understand - my ask would be that you share the Building Family Ties campaign with your friends and family who may have an interest in helping the cause.
Hope everyone is well - as always, don't hesitate to reach out if I can talk to you more about C2!
