Our Baby Bottle Boomerang Goes Full Circle
Updated: Jun 6, 2019
Back in 2016, our Pregnancy & Family Care Center was able to facilitate an adoption between a young family we know and one of our clients who was coming to our Pregnancy & Family Care Center. It was a beautiful time!
Last week, the adoptive Mother wrote a really sweet post, and with her permission we want to share it with you. She writes, "Baby Bottle Boomerang goes full circle! This, dear friends, is full circle.
Three years ago, I wrote this blog post about Sammy’s story and how the Pregnancy and Family Care Center (PFCC) played such a pivotal part of that story. [Click here to read the original post.]
Today, Sammy gave the PFCC a bottle full of change from his own piggy bank - literally all the money he had in there. The bottle is part of the center’s Baby Bottle Boomerang that encourages people to fill it up with coins and bring it back to support the ministry.
This was 100% his idea. He saw the baby bottle on the counter, asked what it was, and then decided he wanted to fill it with his own money.
He then said he wanted to fill his own piggy bank back up. Thinking he had changed his mind I said he could put the coins back in his own bank - but he protested. “No, mama. Me want fill up my bank with more money, all the way to the top, then fill up more baby bottles to help the babies! Me give all my money to the babies!”
“But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:16 NIV
