Adoption support lacked for Becky and Ty as they began their foster care journey, eventually adopting their two girls. Becky began leading a local support group for adoptive and foster families with the help of OCA.
OCA’s vision is for the Body of Christ to lead the efforts of caring for the fatherless. But, the ministry doesn’t stop there. As the Raver family story unfolds you can see that OCA supports and educates adopted families but also helps them connect to other ways to care for the fatherless beyond adoption and foster care. The Raver family experienced this by caring for other foster families.
When crisis strikes, many of us rely on family or our church community to provide the extra support we need during a hard season. Without supports like these in place, circumstances can quickly become debilitating and lead to abuse, neglect or child welfare intervention when the family foundation is rocky.
