Prospective parents need to be screened by the local child welfare society to ensure their suitability as either foster or adoptive parents.
Shepherd’s Keep will assist social workers by introducing them to those with queries about adoption or those wishing to foster or adopt.
An attorney works alongside Shepherd’s Keep to place many babies in different countries, such as America, Holland, Australia, Italy and others.
These babies keep contact with the Pratley’s and send photos at Christmas time – a very fulfilling and wonderful part of the ministry.
