"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

Hundreds of unwanted babies are abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea, every year, forgotten by the surrounding culture.
The Drop Box is a documentary about the work of Pastor Lee Jong-rak and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect his community’s most vulnerable children. By installing a drop box outside his home, Pastor Lee provides a safe haven to babies who would otherwise be abandoned on the streets to die.
It’s a heart-wrenching exploration of the physical and emotional toll associated with providing refuge to save those deemed unwanted by society.
But it’s also a story of hope. And a celebration of the reality that every human life is sacred, has a purpose and is worthy of love.
It’s coming March 4-5 to theatres across Canada. Get your tickets now! You can buy tickets and view the trailer here.
Registration for Together For Adoption Canada Conference 2015 has officially opened! The website is up and has all of the info on speakers, breakouts and more. There is a wide variety of options to choose from and two pre-conference sessions that we are really excited about. Visit www.t4acanada.com for all of the details and registration info.
We are so excited as the adoption/fostering movement across Canada picks up steam and we prepare for what God will do!
Next weekend (Jan. 30-Feb. 1) there's an exciting opportunity to see what God is doing around the world at Missions Fest Vancouver. Come and meet people from all over the world, listen to speakers and see how God is moving all over the world with every people group you can imagine! It's a great way to learn and be inspired or help your children see a world in need beyond their own backyard.
But if you need further motivation to come down to Missions Fest, we'll be there! Yes, ABBA Canada will be there the whole weekend at booth B10. We'd love to meet you in person, hear your story and chat about what God is doing in Canada and around the world in adoption/foster care. We will also be speaking at a seminar from 3:00-4:00pm on Friday, Jan. 30 in room 19 (VCC). Click here for more info
We always leave this weekend tired, but very inspired and excited for what God will do in the upcoming year! We'd love for you to join us, hope to see you there!
Merry Christmas from ABBA Canada! We hope this has been a great season for you, enjoying time with family and friends. This is our favourite time of year, even with all of the busyness. We hope that you find time to relax and enjoy the beautiful moments. This time of year always brings to memory, the many children who will be spending Christmas alone. Please remember to pray for these precious ones. We also celebrate the children that, at this time last year, spent Christmas alone but, will be spending Christmas this year with a loving forever family! You helped some of these children come home!
Every year we rejoice over the families that receive an adoption grant to help bring a precious child home to a forever family. We are able to do this because of the generosity of people like you. Please join us in helping bring more children home to a forever family this year. Every gift received on or before December 31st will receive a 2014 tax receipt. Every year, the number of ABBA Canada grants given has increased and we want to continue that tradition every year. Bless you as you partner with an adopting family.

As parents, it 's close to our hearts that we would be able to convey our heart for children without families to our children. We want them to care for those we care for and it's our prayer that God would move their hearts for the things that move His heart. We are always looking for ways to get them involved in God's work. At Christmas, we've found a few opportunities to bless those around us and provide for those in our community with needs.
With that in mind, we developed a practical and simple way to get your children thinking about children without families, this Christmas. This advent calendar gets your family looking around at the blessings you enjoy in your home every day and encourages them to give back practically to help a child that doesn't enjoy those luxuries. We hope it will be a blessing to you. If you want a larger PDF to print and use, please email us at email@example.com and we will send you one.
It's December 1st today so, Merry Christmas!
We are excited to announce that the Together For Adoption Canada Conference is coming to Vancouver on May 22-23, 2015! The conference will feature a line-up of inspiring speakers and informative workshops. We will announce more details as they become available. But until then, mark your calendars and plan a trip to BC in May 2015.
In an effort to move the conference from the fall to the spring, we needed to avoid planning too close to the fall 2013 conference, thus the reason for the long span between the two conferences.
Please check the conference page for updates, but in the meantime, if you'd like us to put you on our information email list, please send your name and contact to firstname.lastname@example.org
