The Bible says,
"In you the fatherless find compassion."
Tapestry is Kingsland's response to this call. We desire to be the hands and feet of Christ that will bring family to the orphan...one home at a time.
What We Do
Our mission is to provide support, resources, and encouragement to those seeking to adopt, foster, or minister to orphans.
Over the past 9 years, Kingsland’s Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Ministry has assisted more than 60 families touched by adoption. A total of 75 children have been placed in the homes of Kingsland families. And, we have financially assisted 27 families in the Katy area. We have children at Kingsland who have been adopted from Ethiopia, Uganda, Sierra Leone, China, Russia, Ukraine, Colombia and the USA.
Summer Support Group
Tapestry Ministry has three more summer nights with free childcare (for kids birth through 5th grade) at Kingsland from 6 until 8 pm. These meetings are open to all men and women, regardless of church affiliation. We'll have snacks (feel free to also bring something for yourself or to share) and a short presentation.
August 22 - Fellowship Hall. Special Needs ministry will meet together with us. A retired school administrator will be speaking on navigating the school system (SPED, ARDs, 504s, IEPs, etc.).
Tapestry Women's Night
Tapestry Women's Night Out (Adoption & Foster Care) September 6 at 7 PM at KINGSLAND. We know that women who are in the process of adoption, no matter where they are along the journey, desire to be connected with other women. This is a great place to meet other adoptive moms, get many of your questions answered by women who have walked that road before you and to just be encouraged. You do not need to be a member of Kingsland to attend. Invite other adoptive moms to join us for dessert and coffee. For more information, contact Robin Espey at 281.492.0785.
How to Help Families
We have a lot of foster families involved with our Tapestry Adoption Ministry and there is a huge need for people who are able to watch our foster children every now and then during the day. Fostering Hope Houston is partnering with multiple foster care agencies to offer a Babysitter Certification Class for those looking to support foster families. Trusted, certified, well-trained babysitters are a huge blessing to foster families and the children in their care. The class will include Medication/Transportation Training, Trauma-Informed Care Training, CPR/First Aid Certification, and the necessary documentation required for certification to satisfy the requirements of multiple agencies. Participants must be connected to a foster family prior to attending the certification class. More information and registration: www.fosteringhopehouston.org/trainings
Need More Information?
There are no dumb questions when it comes to adoption and foster care. The answers to adoption and foster care related questions are often not obvious and finding reliable information can sometimes be quite difficult.
We would love to talk with you further about any questions that you have. So whether you want to know more about Tapestry or simply have questions about adoption or foster care, please do not hesitate to contact Patricia Collins or Robin Espey at 281.492.0785.
