Elizabeth Ministry encourages family relationships formed through adoption, foster care
or marriage. Elizabeth Ministry also recognizes the pain experienced by those waiting to
adopt as well as the grief and sense of loss felt by birth parents.

ADOPTION- The decision to adopt is a complex decision and a life-long commitment.
Often the process is difficult, expensive, and frustrating. But once you have your new
baby or child in your home, you begin to experience the joys and challenges of parenting.

Our resources and your local EM Chapter's services provide support for families
considering adoption, those in the midst of the adoptive process, and persons making an
adoption plan for their child.

BLENDING FAMILIES- In our society today, there is an ever increasing need to combine
and successfully blend families, or multiple generations into a single household. These
situations result in a need to form new family relationships and bonds, while respecting
each individual and their continuing family relationships outside of the immediate home.

Whether due to divorce, marriage, re-marriage, death or economic circumstances, see our
web store for resources and contact your local EM Chapter to find a mentor experienced
in blending or changing families.
Any Elizabeth Ministry consultation, mentoring, resources or projects should not be construed as an attempt to offer or
render a legal or medical opinion or otherwise to engage in the practice of law or medicine, or other health care disciplines.
