The Blessing & Family Ministry has relaunched the Offering Children Ministry (adoption ministry) in America!
Our faith has a wonderful tradition of supporting couples who have difficulty conceiving a child through a practice known as Offering Children, where a couple feels called to offer a child to a couple for adoption, enabling them to experience parenthood.
Intent of the Ministry
True Parents have advised that offering a child to another couple should be arranged between couples based on a relationship of heart. This sometimes happens within a community where there is already a relationship between a seeking couple and a couple willing to offer. But for couples that do not have that opportunity, the Offering Children Ministry of the Blessing & Family Ministry would like to help facilitate relationships. This facilitation process will be done through a prayer list. Couples can request to be added to the prayer list by contacting us, and their names and pertinent information will be added to the prayer list.
Families who feel called to offer can look at the list for potential couples to offer to.
Couples who have already participated in this tradition have invaluable guidance to offer to this area of great sensitivity. One of the most important areas where these experienced couples can help is as counselors to both receiving and offering families. When a couple contacts the BFM, an experienced counselor will connect with them and support them through the process.
The Blessing & Family Ministry will also facilitate networking and recommend best practices both internally and practically.
How to Make the Connection
When a couple contacts the BFM, either seeking to receive or offer, they will be contacted by a counselor, who will help them navigate the process.
