As you may know, we have been hoping for the arrival of Baby Patel for a long time. Along this journey, we considered other ways to expand our family. We learned that many children in our own community are faced with scary and difficult family situations.
We lucky and have more than enough love, resources and 'stuff' needed for a safe and happy home for our little one. In lieu of gifts, we hope you will consider a donation to Partnerships for Children, a group that supports children in the care of Central Texas CPS and it's foster system: www.partnershipsforchildren.org
From Partnerships for Children:
"We’re essentially a support system for Central Texas CPS caseworkers and children. We’re located inside CPS offices, and we’re caseworkers’ first point of contact to get something they need to help them care for the children they’re working with.
-We provide a supply room in CPS buildings that’s open 24/7 in case a child needs something any time of day. It could be toiletries, school supplies, a toy, diapers, or clothing.
-We provide community mentors to youth who are likely to age out of the foster care system, empowering them to live independently.
-We provide gifts to make the magic of the holidays a reality for children who need it most.
-We help foster children who’ve been waiting to be adopted find a forever home with a loving family.
All these little things that say “You’re not alone” and “We care” add up over a child’s life. They can change the course of their future."
Thank you for supporting this amazing organization.
All our love,
Lauren & Harshal
