Giving Tuesday started in 2012 by people in the world – good people with good hearts and a simple idea “a day that encourages people to do good.” This year, let us do good and help add another seat at a dinner table.
Sacred Selections mission is to financially assist Christian couples whose hearts and homes are open to loving and raising a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The dream of parenting does not have to be constrained by limited financial resources. The foundation, its board and many generous donors are committed to using the blessings we’ve received to assist in the wonderful effort in creating a Christian home and family.

Sacred Selections is a faith-based adoption agency that has been offering financial assistance to individuals looking to open their hearts to children in need of forever families for the last 10 years. Mike and Chelsea share their beautiful adoption story.
We are Michael and Heather and we adopted two beautiful children from Ethiopia in August 2011. We began our journey to adopt a baby girl, but soon fell in love with a picture of a little four year-old boy that had been at the orphanage for a long time. We could not stop thinking about him and tried to figure out how we could afford to adopt both children. We knew there would be extra medical bills and surgery for our little boy when he was…
I feel very blessed that Christians gave us the contact information about Sacred Selections. We had not heard of the foundation until a preacher asked us if we knew about it when he held a gospel meeting for our congregation during our adoption process for Alex. It has amazed me how it has affected so many people. The connections we have made will be lifelong, and eternal. Of course, the foundation helped us financially with a grant that helped secure…
We were inspired to be foster parents by the example of fellow Christians. Within a couple of weeks the stork delivered Isaiah to our doorstep straight from the hospital. It was a love affair from the beginning. Though it seemed like he was always a permanent part of the family his name now reflects it! Thanks to Sacred Selections, without the pressing financial concerns that typically accompany adoption we have been able to focus on serving the fatherless. Since our…
When a family determines to open their home and hearts to a child through adoption, the costs can be staggering. Depending on what route is chosen, the expense can range from $2,500–$40,000. These fees include legal costs, travel expenses, agency charges, and immigration and court costs. Adopting an orphaned child is an act of extreme love and sacrifice. Often, families are prevented from adopting because it simply can’t be afforded. Even the moderate expense of adoption through a foster agency can keep a child from the love of a Christian home. Working in conjunction with Sacred Selections, 1213 strives to help these families in their service to God and desire to fulfill James 1:27.
At One Stone, we are inspired by Sacred Selection’s mission and the work of individual Christians seeking to fulfill the Lord’s plan. To support this cause, One Stone donates 2% of sales to Sacred Selections. Also, at checkout, we also offer the ability for individuals to donate additional funds directly to Sacred Selections. (All of your donation goes directly toward the adoption, not administrative expenses, and Sacred Selections only accepts donations from individuals, not churches.)
