Foster Care Rally




There are hundreds of children in foster care in the state of Virginia, waiting for a family to call their own.

Rally at Cherrydale Baptist in Arlington on Saturday, May 11, (register here), where you will hear powerful stories from families whose lives have been enhanced by foster care and adoption.   These events are intended to inspire us all to work together to make a difference in children’s lives, and help to end their wait!

Matthew 25:40 “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
