Right now, over 1,000 children and youth in California foster care are waiting for adoptive families – waiting for the opportunity to have someone to call mom and dad. At the same time, God has given clear commands to care for His orphan children, and California is home to over 20,000 churches.

Wait No More is an exciting one day conference, hosted by Focus on the Family, designed to help find families for children waiting in foster care by bringing together churches and church members from across the state.

Join Saddleback’s Orphan Care Initiative, Focus on the Family, California’s Health and Human Services as well as church and adoption leaders from around California on Saturday, September 14, 2013 from 10am to 2pm at the Lake Forest campus at Saddleback Church for Wait No More.

You’ll hear more about the kids who are waiting, the process of adoption from foster care and ways to support adoptive families. In addition, agency and county representatives will be on site to answer questions and help families get started. At last year’s Southern California event more than 208 families initiated the process of adoption from foster care!
