THE SUITCASE MOVEMENT

A MINISTRY OF OPEN DOOR ADOPTION AGENCY, INC.

A NEW APPROACH TO ADOPTION FROM FOSTER CARE

WHAT IS THE SUITCASE MOVEMENT?

The Suitcase Movement serves two main purposes: first, to seek adoptive families for children in the Georgia foster care system; and second, to raise public awareness for waiting children in Georgia.

CHILDREN WAITING IN GEORGIA

 

WHY THE SUITCASE MOVEMENT?

A suitcase is a sign of something temporary, like a trip or an adventure to a faraway place. Sadly, for hundreds of Georgia children, a suitcase is a symbol of their constantly changing circumstances. Another foster home, another sudden transition. Our mission is to see these children unpack their suitcase in a forever home with a loving Christian family.

Amber Childs, Program Coordinator

Amber has a Master's degree in Education and worked in the school system from 2000 until joining An Open Door in July 2018.  Amber serves as adoption consultant for Southwest Georgia as well as works with The Suitcase Movement helping Georgia foster children find forever families. She believes God planted her at AOD to grow in the ministry of serving others here by supporting each birth mother in her decision-making process and in encouraging adoptive families as they look to build their family through adoption.
