National Foster Care Month

In January 2009, Oklahoma had 10,674 children in foster care. Children under the age of 4 accounted for 4,293 of those in foster care. At that time, Oklahoma had only 1,473 foster families.

Children need safe and nurturing families.

Recently, Christian Services of Oklahoma entered into an infant foster care contract with the state. If interested in training to become a foster family for an infant or in supporting the new program, please check out www.christian-adoption.org.

"...learn to do good;
seek justice,
correct oppression;
bring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow's cause" (Isaiah 1:17, English Standard Version).
