You know the statistics of abortions occurring each year. You feel called to do something- but where do you start? Join us for a practical 45-minute webinar discussing how to minister to men and women in unplanned pregnancies, the proper response of the church toward these families, the positive life-giving option of adoption, and hands-on ways to continue caring for birthparents after they’ve placed their child for adoption.
