“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

AFFEC Matching Event - Wed., Sept. 18th, 1pm PST (an online event)

Don't  miss out on this great AFFEC online event!

How it Works!
A Family For Every Child Hosts Child Matching Events in hopes to match as many children with their forever family as possible. This event is a great opportunity for families to get to know children who are searching for a forever home from across the nation without leaving their home. These events are hosted over an online webinar. During the event caseworkers will present on children from their caseload in a visually pleasing way. Throughout the presentation families can type in any questions they have abut any of the children presented on. At the end of the event families will get the opportunity to then submit a home study on any child. Don't miss out on this event to find the perfect match for your family.
