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.
Celebrating Forever Families April 22 from 4-7 PM
Kingsland's Tapestry Adoption/Foster Care Ministry invites all foster and adoptive families to join us for our FREE Annual Family Gathering at GLOWZONE KATY Sunday, April 22. This event is an opportunity for us to celebrate and build community among families walking the path of adoption and foster care. This celebration also gives us an opportunity to remind us how grateful we are that God brought us together as forever families.
There will be salad and pizza buffet for everyone, along with 2 hours of activities and unlimited arcade. (Glow Mini Golf, Ninja Course, Scale the City Climbing, Bazooka Ball, Laser Maze, Spin Zone Bumper Cars and Toddlers have a place of their own at Soft City). Closed-toe shoes are required for most activities.
For more information, please contact Robin Espey at email@example.com.
Tapestry Women's Night
Tapestry Women's Night Out (Adoption & Foster Care) May 3 at 7 PM at La Madeleine. 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.
Adoption & Foster Care Panel Discussion
We honor Jesus when we care for the "least of these" in our society (Matthew 25:40). One way to do this is through adoption. Tapestry Adoption Ministry will host a panel discussion on adoption & foster care on Wednesday, April 18th at 7 pm in room C-250/C-252.
Come hear from couples who have adopted domestically, internationally, and from the foster care system. Be inspired by their stories of how God called them to step up for children in need and then put their families together.
Childcare is provided for 3 and under. Evening activities are provided for 3 years to 5th grade. Register for childcare here.
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. Currently, CPS allows people 18 years and older to go through a series of steps to become babysitters (background check, fingerprinting, CPR class, online quiz, and minimal paperwork.) and Kingsland's adoption fund would cover the cost of certification. If we could build a network of certified babysitters for our foster families, it would help foster parents attend court hearings, go to doctor's appointments, have date nights, get a break in general, etc. By supporting foster families in this is a way, you are engaging in orphan care ministry and being a blessing to foster parents. For more information, please contact Amber Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281.782.9605.
