We had a fantastic time celebrating our 200th adoption with 28 of our families and the Bryan County Community at the Pavilion at JF Gregory Park! We played games, enjoyed Kona Ice and had a ball at this special event! Lots of fun was had by all. What a wonderful way to commemorate that 200 children now have forever homes!
A big thank you to our wonderful volunteers and vendors who helped make this day so memorable especially Laurie Schultz Photography, Pop Squad Balloons, Kona Ice of Savannah and Richmond Hill Fun Game Rentals.

Love One was able to be a part of a DFCS Appreciation Day in May and shower caseworkers with cupcakes & ice cream. We were able to encourage caseworkers and bless several of them with gift cards through random drawings. It was such a fun event! DFCS workers were also given time to recharge through a fun painting activity. Working in Foster Care, Child Protective Services, & Adoption can be stressful! We are so thankful that we got to celebrate our local caseworkers! We pray that you stay committed, inspired, and fulfilled in the work that you do! We appreciate you!
Love One completely relies on donors, volunteers, and grants. Without any of these components, we could not do the work we are doing for the fatherless. If you donate each month, quarterly, or once a year, know your sacrifice does not go unnoticed. If you volunteer all the time with us or once or twice a year, the gift of your time does not go unseen and we know the value of having willing people with happy hearts and smiles who want to serve. That is priceless! Life is busy and expensive. Thank you for sharing your gifts, talents, and treasures with us! All of the events above, require funding and volunteers. We would love to share with you how you can get involved and be a part of OUR team!
Did you know that a baby can go through an average of 2,200 diapers in the first year? Diapers are always a big need for our Foster families. Many of our families have more than one child in diapers at a time and are so thankful for any diaper donations. We are so grateful to our Community Partner, Morningstar Storage, located at 6012 OGEECHEE RD, SAVANNAH, GA 31419 for hosting our 2023 diaper drive. Check out their flier below and if you need a great place to store your treasures, Morningstar is a great, ideal location to Savannah or Richmond Hill. Our CARE closet is located there and we are there frequently without any safety concerns. Management is always helpful and the facility is always clean. Donate a box or pack of diapers and drop them by their front office to have a chance to win a 1-year membership to Costco or Sams Club. Thanks, Morningstar! We appreciate your support for the fatherless!
We had a blast at the Ghost Pirates game on March 12th. The Ghost Pirates won their hockey match! It was so exciting to watch the teams go into overtime and watch the Ghost Pirates take the win at the last minute. Our foster and adoptive families were appreciative of this time together and we are so thankful for all the “new” undies collected for the CARE closet for Love One. We are fully stocked and were able to give to Gilliard & Company, Xcel, and Family Promise to help reach more families and kids. Our CARE closet serves on average 2 families a week for foster children to get clothes as needed.Several of our kids had a chance to meet a few of the Ghost Pirates players before the game as they were stretching and warming up and it was the delight of the kids’ day! Thank you to the Ghost Pirates for making us feel so special! It was a great day of raising awareness for the fatherless, adoption, and foster care as well as just a day of good ole’ fun cheering on the Ghost Pirates. We can’t wait to host our families again in 2024! We appreciate you and can’t wait to cheer you on again!
