The BAF Domestic Adoption
December 2021 Newsletter

I love this time of year!  Yes, it is crazy busy, but being able to give the gift of hope for the holidays is simply an incomparable feeling!  From adoptive families that are unable to conceive, to birth mothers who were in crisis and now see a way forward to a brighter future, and of course the precious babies given the gift of life and love, the joy is tangible.

Yes, the pandemic has made the entire process more challenging but nothing can stop the miracle of adoption.  We have navigated through a very challenging year, but despite the ups and downs, we have placed forty-three babies so far this year!!!   I think of forty-three babies times three, as adoption is a triple miracle.  We are celebrating 129 miracles, and we are not done yet!

There is so much work to do.  Would you consider a year end gift to help us reach more pregnant women in crisis in 2022?  It is tax deductible and makes such a difference!  If so, click HERE.

All the best,

Kelly Rourke-Scarry

Building Arizona Families



During the month of November, Building Arizona Families placed 2 newborn babies in loving homes around the United States!  Each baby has a wonderful future ahead of them. We are so grateful for the courageous birth mothers and compassionate adoptive families who love these precious babies enough to give them a life and a bright future.


Did you know that adoption rates are declining in the United States, while the need for forever families continues to grow?  The 2% U.S. adoption rate is heartbreaking in light of how many precious children need loving parents to nurture them.  Please help us share the news about the need for forever families for babies whose birth mothers are unable to parent.  Can you take a moment to forward this newsletter to at least 5 friends and ask them to sign up for our monthly newsletters HERE.  EVERY child in America deserves to grow up in a loving, forever family.


CJ was lonely, afraid, addicted and homeless.  She was also pregnant.

CJ didn’t believe that anyone would help her with no strings attached.  She didn’t believe people would walk with her, provide resources and encourage her through her pregnancy, much less support her to reach her personal goals.

CJ made the selfless choice of adoption for her baby girl so she could have the stable life she deserves.  Today CJ is clean, sober, and working on making a positive contribution to society.  She wants her daughter to be proud of her.  CJ’s life and her daughter’s life is forever changed because of the support she received.  Watch her story HERE (top right video).
