Texas Baptists called
to prayer for adoption need

Adela Jones, clinical director for Buckner Adoption & Maternity Services, has issued an urgent call for prayer and action for two children who have not been adopted and “need to be in their forever homes now.”


Both Precious, a 5-month-old girl, and Armani, a 9-month-old girl, are African-American, have been legally approved for adoption and are healthy, Jones said. “We desperately need two-parent, Christian families of any race who want to share their love with either or both of these sweet children.”

Jones also called for prayer for Armani and Precious among Baptist Standard readers. “I plead with everyone who reads this to pray without ceasing that God would make known his plan for Precious and Armani by revealing loving parents for them.”

She also asked for prayer for the birthmothers of two more African-American children “that God would guide them through this difficult but courageous decision and that he would find these two children adoptive parents as well.”

For immediate information about these children and domestic adoption through Buckner, contact Jones by phone at (214) 319-3426 or by e-mail at ajones@buckner.org.
