Social Worker Appreciation Month

This past March was Social Work month. Social work month was established in 1963 and is an opportunity for social workers to spotlight their profession. At Texas Baptist Home, we want to let you hear from some of our social workers.

Here are some testimonies of the TBH case workers favorite memories working at TBH and what makes their job worth it.
“Witnessing the adoption of 5 siblings getting adopted together makes my job worth it.”
“Now that I have been in the field for several years, I know this is what I was meant to do. Seeing hurting children heal and families made whole (through either reunification with their biological family or adoption) is such an honor to be a small part of. I feel it is my calling and it is such fulfilling work!”
“Crisis pregnancy has been on my heart since high school. Now I am fortunate to work with women in crisis pregnancy and encourage them to use their experience to better their lives, as well as facilitate a stable and loving home life for a child and help adoptive parents to expand their families.”
“I wanted to get into social work because I know from experience the hope that one person and one small positive seed planted in a child can bring to their lives. If I can do or say something that will give a child or parent a glimpse at their importance and worth, even without seeing a change, I can at least have faith that the seed has a chance at growing.”
“It has increased my faith knowing that He is working in the lives of people and He is in the business of redeeming broken situations and making them beautiful for His glory. And, by His grace alone, He has given me a front row to witness this!”
These are just some of the stories from case workers at Texas Baptist Home. Your thoughts, prayers and donations go to support not only our children and families, but our staff. They work tirelessly to continue to serve families and children for the Glory of God.
