"kNOw MORE Orphans" Fellowship!

If you are interested in hanging out with several families that are all about "adoption" and all about "caring for the needs of orphans"..... join us at our house on September 25. This is not just for families who have already adopted OR are in the process of adopting. If you feel that God is tugging at your heart to just "do something" to help care for the 147 million orphans in the world..... then, you need to come. We will eat, hang out, pray and fellowship with the overall theme of the night being all about our desire to "kNOw MORE" orphans.

The month of November is Orphan awareness month and November 7th is actually "Orphan Sunday". You can click HERE to learn more about that. If your church doesn't currently dedicate this day or month to orphans, we would love to share some ideas on how to get that started.

If you are close enough to join us for fellowship, we would love to see you. We will get the night started at 6:00. Kids are welcome! I'm thinking dinner will be a mexican buffet but who knows that could change in the next week and a half. If you are interested in joining us or you just have questions, please e-mail me at pollybice@aol.com

Together, we can all "KNOW more" about our responsibility to the fatherless, so the orphaned can be "NO more".

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27

  3. Hey Polly,

    I LOVE what you are doing. I love your creativity in expressing your passion to help the fatherless.

    Eph. 2:10

  4. Polly,

    I just started reading your blog and it's amazing! We live in the Birmingham area also and have been praying about adoption. You guys are the first family I have found that are pursuing adoption from Ethiopia that live our area. We feel called to Ethiopia, too. Our hearts have been on fire for Africa for the last few years and we hope to do mission work there in the near future. We will be praying for you guys as you journey to your Esther.
    I wanted to do something for you. I make custom key fobs & would love to do some for you guys to raffle for funds to put toward your adoption fund. I just started this project along with doing appliqué shirts. The key fobs I have been doing have handwritten text. I woud be more than happy to do some for you guys!

    Peace & grace,
    Kristy Hicks
