"I never knew I could love as many kids as the way I do, I didn't think my heart had that much room," shares Donnie Macom.
Moved by the number of foster children in the Oklahoma State foster care system (an astonishing 8364 children in Oklahoma), Randi and Donnie Macom felt a calling to start their foster journey. "It wasn't until we went to training that we realize how incredible the need actually is. It grabs ahold of you. We just sat there and realized, our home represents a number of kids who wouldn't otherwise have a home," shares Randi.
Through your donations, Anna's House Foundation provides a future of hope and faith to foster children. We support foster families as they live out God's calling on their life to serve the broken. We believe there isn't a greater opportunity to share the love of Christ than to help heal a vulnerable child. In the book of Matthew, Jesus reminds us to let our light shine for others, that they may see our good deeds and glorify God. His desire is that when people see you, they are reminded of Him.
Your dollars not only have the impact of placing foster children in safe loving homes but is matched with our chance at stopping the cycle of generational abuse and neglect. The Macom family has had five children in their home over the last year and a half. They have made a commitment of not only focusing on the healing of the children in their homes, but also a focus on helping heal the biological families. It is a beautiful picture of God's vision for the church. These sweet children represent five of the one hundred and seventy children served by Anna's House last year, and we feel the urgency there is still more we can do. But, we cannot do it without your support.
Through God's grace and provision, Anna's House received a gift to help double the impact you can make. Between now and December 31, every dollar you make to Anna's House Foundation will be matched up to $35,000.
