Rita met Dana Carrozza (one of Sacred Selection’s founders) at Florida College. In 2010, just after her husband passed, she asked Dana to put her to work with Sacred Selections. Rita later said, “Little did I know HOW much work she had for me to do.”
Rita began keeping track of donor information, and after retiring in 2014, she’s finding even more ways to help. Rita says, “It is amazing how work satisfaction changes when you go from ‘making a living’ to ‘doing the work of the Lord.’ The Lord has blessed me by providing a way for me to live comfortably while doing this important volunteer work. Dana is my hero and I always tell her that I want to be like her when I grow up.”
Thank you, Rita, for your hard work in helping children find Christian homes!
Tina has worked with Sacred Selections since the Fall of 2016. She and her husband have been on their own adoption journey, and in Tina’s words, “I wanted to do all I could to help others on theirs.”
Tina helps manage the overall fundraising events website. That site is utilized by all Sacred Selections Fundraising Event Chairs and gives them quick access to important information as they plan and prepare for events. Tina says, “I am so lucky to get to be a part of this work in some small way and am so grateful to all who work so hard in this wonderful endeavor!”
Sacred Selections needs more workers like Tina. Thank you!
Erin has worked with Sacred Selections since 2011. She says, “There is nothing I have wanted more my entire life than to be a mama. When health issues were derailing that dream, Joshua and I turned to adoption. Sacred Selections helped to make our dreams come true when Josiah was born in 2010.”
We’re blessed to have you as a volunteer, Erin! Thank you for your work.
Norma does many things for Sacred Selections — from helping fundraisers in Folsom, CA to sending thank you cards to families who send in donations.
She is extremely passionate about Sacred Selections because she loves helping children. She said, “I love children — always have. I was influenced by my mother who adored children.”
Thank you, Norma, for your passionate work!
Dan began working with Sacred Selections in 2011. He was adopted as a newborn into a loving Christian family so adoption has always been special to him. After attending a 2008 Sacred Selections event in Kansas City, he and his wife knew if they chose to adopt in the future, Dana Carrozza would be the one they called.
A few years later, Dan and his family moved to Nashville, TN to work with Ramsey Solutions — a financial peace organization dedicated to helping families become debt free. Dan says, “One of the perks is being able to take a week of paid leave every year to help a ministry of our choosing. I am a software developer and learned that Sacred Selections needed someone to work on the website. So in 2011, the website got some much needed attention without needing to spend any donated funds.” Dan went on to say that “Sacred Selections is the ministry that our whole family will support for many years to come.”
Thank you, Dan, for your much needed work!
