Changed Lives


Newborn babies placed in loving adoptive families.

48 85

Overjoyed adoptive families loving their babies. Birth mothers supported through their courageous adoption journey, and then into a positive future.

2021 has been a bit of a roller coaster with ongoing health concerns due to the pandemic, as well as rising costs of many items that people need. As a result, it has made life even more challenging for women experiencing crisis pregnancies. With homelessness on the rise, finding these women who are at such a vulnerable time in their lives is more difficult but all the more urgent. We are grateful that we have been able to serve as many birth mothers as we have, and place wonderful newborn babies into the loving arms of their loving adoptive families. In 2022 we will continue to reach out to as many pregnant women in crisis as possible to make sure their precious unborn babies are given the gift of life and a bright future. We will continue to be committed to the wellbeing of the courageous birth mother as well, giving her the support she needs postplacement to begin a positive, productive life. And of course, we rejoice with every adoptive family whose prayers are answered by the little miracle they now hold close.

"Thank you for caring so deeply about adoption. Every adoption positively changes the future for at least three people!" We are so grateful that you care, and will keep you updated each month on the lives we are given the privilege of helping to better through the miracle of adoption. We look forward to working hard in 2022 to make a difference for as many people as possible. I wish you the best in 2022,

Kelly Rourke-Scarry, MSW President Building Arizona Families
