Merry Christmas! Thank you so much for giving to the Christmas Wish campaign. We know these families will be blessed by your donation. We have received two families from 2INgage/CPS this year. Both families are different in dynamics and stories. However, they are both needing much of the same items. There are a few items that are just for fun –
because it’s Christmas.

Due to COVID, we are moving most of our Orphan Care Christmas Drive to be accessible online. So we just want to remind you of a couple things.

First, you can give online in any amount. Click on this giving button. There is a place to designate for "Orphan Care"
GIVING

Secondly, if you are not able to get out or do not wish to go shopping for the gifts – but you would still like to donate the amount shown for the gift, please sign up for that particular gift and Pastor Derek will receive the information. Then, contact him and let him know that you gave online towards a particular gift.

Third, there will still be a tree in the foyer with gifts that are not specific to a family. These are used by the agencies to help foster families throughout the year. We will also include some of these gifts online. You can sign up for one, two or more needs through our website or in the foyer.

And finally, all gifts need to be purchased and brought to the church (or other arrangements made) by the end of the day on DECEMBER 6. If you have any questions, please call Pastor Derek in the church office or email him at dcarter@heritageag.org.

Thank you for giving during this Christmas season to bless these two families!


Family "A"

Information Provided by 2INgage (CPS)

There are two kids in this family – a 4-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy - who are being taken care of by their great uncle and great aunt. They have been with the kids for two and half years and are finally getting to adopt the children. For the last year and half, they have not received regular assistance from DFPS. They also care for a 17 year old niece whose mom has multiple sclerosis. They were hit hard by COVID and have not been able to do anything extra – as all of their income goes to making ends meet as they care for these children in their home.

Family "B"

Information Provided by 2INgage (CPS)

A great uncle has stepped up to take 2 of his 3 great nieces, and is waiting for the 3rd niece after she gets more therapeutic assistance at a treatment center. They are anticipating her return to the home by Christmas, if possible. The great uncle had less than a few hours’ notice when the girls were placed and anxiously awaited for them without hesitation. His daughter is also in the home. She is 18 years old. She has also embraced the girls and they all 3 share a small room. Due to the change of plan for the girls, they are looking for a bigger home to accommodate everyone.

The girls are ages 12, 9 & 6. All 3 girls are close and are ready to be together again. In addition to the taking on the girls within the last month, the great uncle’s son passed away. He has suffered a great loss. However, even during this time was more worried about the girls than himself. This placement was meant to be temporary. However, it has turned out that it will likely be long-term. The family would be grateful for any assistance. As a side note…the great uncle LOVES the Dallas Cowboys!
