Our charity has had the privilege of assisting many adoptions over the years. However, we have also been highly involved with helping some families deal with expenses after the adoptions. It is not uncommon at all for parents adopting older children to need professional services. Therefore, we are thrilled to be involved with “Let Children Smile. Let Children Smile is a group of Christian families who support each other post-adoption.
1213 is creating a category of financial assistance for parents raising adopted children with needs for professional care as they transition into loving homes and are rebuilding their young lives into healthy trusting young men and women. We are calling it the SPA fund. SPA: Supporting Post Adoption.
SPA will provide financial assistance for families with special needs beyond their abilities to fund either from insurance coverage, friends, family and local church support. Typically this includes temporary residential care, uncovered professional counseling, therapy or medications.
