ABBA Canada

Connecting, Equipping, and Mobilizing the Church and Families in Canada to Care for the Orphan through Adoption & Fostercare ABBA Canada exists to raise the banner of God’s call to care for the fatherless.

We exist to respond to the biblical call of James 1:27 “Pure and undefiled religion is this; to care for the widow and the orphan.” Our dream is for every believer to be engaged with helping vulnerable children and we long to see thousands of children around the world cared for through this ministry, and others like it. We do this through: RAISING AWARENESS FOR ADOPTION – At the center of the gospel is the glorious reality that we have been adopted in Christ. This vertical reality ought to move us to care for the orphans in our world. There are 143 million children in need of care today; 30,000 in Canada alone. PROVIDING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR ADOPTION – The number one obstacle to adoption is the finances. We provide interest-free loans and grants to help Christian families fulfill God’s call to adopt. EQUIPPING THE CHURCH TO CARE FOR ORPHANS – We provide assistance in establishing local church adoption, fostercare, orphancare ministries, including starting church adoption funds. SUPPORTING ADOPTIVE & FOSTER FAMILIES – Adoption and fostercare is hard and it is easy to feel alone. We want to connect you with other families and resources to help you.

Breakouts

What might you learn at this year's conference?

Maybe you've already determined (as yourself or as a church) that you want to engage somehow in caring for vulnerable children and families, but you're just not sure how. There will be a number of breakouts that will give you ideas and resources to begin intentional engagement:

101 - “Adoption 101” & 201 - "Fostering 101" - learn how you can adopt or foster or support those on the adoption or foster care journey.

103 - Safe Families - learn how churches can collaborate in a community to support families at risk of family breakdown, keep children out of the foster care system and provide supportive relationships that will give them long-term stability.

102 - “Starting a Ministry for Vulnerable Children” - how churches can begin to form a plan for supporting foster care and adoption in their church family and community.

203 - “Rethinking children's ministry: creating an environment of safety” - by understanding the experiences of the children we come in contact with, we can be better equipped to care for them in our church family.

204 - "Who, Me?! Equipping you to share the message" - maybe you feel the call to engage for vulnerable kids but your church family isn't there yet. Learn how you can share the gospel call to care for the fatherless in your sphere of influence.

302 - “Fostering, adopting and mentoring older children, teens and young adults who have aged out of care” - older kids in the system and aged-out youth still need family and community. Learn the needs and how you can engage or mentor an older youth.

Breakouts

What can you learn at T4A?

Older kids and teens comprise a large portion of Canada's children in care. However, many people feel more overwhelmed by the thought of caring for a teen than by the thought of caring for a younger child. There are unique needs, challenges and rewards of older child adoption. And their needs for the support of a family do not simply vanish when they "age out" of government care system. So what can we do then?

In breakout session 302, experienced foster & adoptive parent, Lesli Bartlett will be sharing about older children, teen adoption and moral adoption. She will speak on both the joys and struggles in day to day life and explore the similarities and differences in attachment and bonding with an older child or teen adoptee.

Come and learn with Lesli Bartlett in 302 - “Fostering, adopting and mentoring older children, teens and young adults who have aged out of care”.
