Hundreds attend local adoption agency benefit

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Hundreds attended the second annual Call Her Blessed luncheon benefiting local adoption agency, Christian Homes and Family Services.

Christian Homes offers free maternity care for young women with unplanned pregnancy, and in turn prepares Christian couples for adoption.

This year's guest speaker was Sheila Walsh, author of several books including her latest, Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God.

"They are a very nonjudgemental group," said Walsh. "It's simply a case of if a young girl finds herself pregnant and doesn't know what do. She can come here and be loved and accepted. She can be helped to raise the baby. She can be helped to put the baby up for adoption they simply want to get behind the girl and say you are not alone you don't have to walk through this by yourself."

In addition to Tyler, the ministry has offices in Abilene, Fort Worth and Houston.
