The Importance of Foster Care and Adoption

There are so many hurting kids out there who need a new home. Thank God for good foster parents and adoptive parents who don’t judge these kids but love them through. Check out this powerful video on the importance of really understanding hurting kids.

The video can be found at http://vimeo.com/73172036. It is also available on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOeQUwdAjE0&feature=youtu.be.

ReMoved Past 2 is also now available

The makers of ReMoved explain the reason behind the videos:

The ReMoved Films are being created with the intent to bring light to the often unknown subjects of Foster Care and Child Abuse/Neglect. The films educate those who are learning, while simultaneously identifying with those who understand all too well. The films are available online to watch for free. We do this because even though the cost of creating a film is high, we believe these films can have the most impact when they’re most easily accessible.

Our goal is that these films would serve as a key tool in raising up and training good foster parents, social workers, court-appointed special advocates, and the many other adults who interact with children in foster care. To that end, we encourage foster care related agencies and organizations to use the film in their training, outreach, and fundraising endeavors.

You can find out more about the Removed films and how you can screen the films at your church or organization by visiting ReMovedFilm.com.
