One Church One Child of Florida is a faith-based, 501(c) 3 organization, operating statewide in partnership with the Department of Children and Families and local community based lead agencies and their providers to help raise awareness and recruit adoptive and foster families for children in local communities and churches to partner in supporting local children in foster care through Church Watch-Care Ministries.
Tampa’s Rev. Beverly H. Lane serves as President for Florida’s One Church One Child State Board of Directors and Regional Vice-President for National One Church One Child and helps in leading the charge across the state to find both permanent and temporary homes for Florida’s children in foster care.
The reality is that over 50 percent of the children who need a permanent family are minorities. The series continues featuring children all over Florida who are waiting in foster care for a forever loving family to call their own. August’s child is highlighted in this article.
Continue to pray for him and consider making him a part of your family through adoption or a part of your church through Project Watch-Care, for support and mentoring.
Jeremiah’s a sweet, playful kid who loves games of all kinds. He can be a little shy, but he has a big heart and he cares for other people, and so it makes sense that his biggest goal is to become a fireman when he grows up.
He tries hard in school – excelling especially in math – and he’s very proud of being chosen as a library aide this year. He is a very thoughtful, loving kid who wants and deserves to have his sweet, affectionate nature reciprocated by a forever family.
Jeremiah will thrive in a loving, patient two-parent home that will nurture his many talents and help him to retain contact with his family out-of-state.
