The Hearts Behind Asa’s Place

Asa's story inspires a family to change lives, one child at a time!

 

by Sara Vogt - February 20, 2019

Four years ago while attending a family gathering, Sean and Robin Adams listened to the story of the birth of a beautiful baby boy. He was born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome or NAS, which is a result of the sudden discontinuation of fetal exposure to substances(prescription or illicit) that were used or abused by his mother during pregnancy. At that moment, they both knew that they would do whatever was necessary to help the mother and baby. After many attempts to assist the mother failed, they stepped forward as a permanency option in the foster care system and began the process of adopting him. The name Asa was chosen in honor of his maternal great-great-grandfather, Asa Lawrence Clemens. Asa means healer of the broken and physician of the heart.

The first year of Asa’s life consisted of sleepless nights, caseworker visits and foster care visits along with four therapy appointments per week with OT, Speech, Special Instructor and Music Therapy. Also during this time, Asa wanted to be held and comforted 24/7. Robin and Sean consistently loved and consoled Asa through his first year of life to give him the healthy foundation he deserved and needed.

After the adoption was finalized, Robin felt a sense of joy and relief. But then she began contemplating the other children who were suffering from NAS and their parents. Hence, the birth of Asa’s Place, a registered charitable 501(c)(3) organization. As founder and executive director, Robin seeks to build a safe place for the work of nurturing babies and their families unhindered. In creating Asa’s place she has gained the assistance of the local government and community agencies. For a complete picture of Robin’s vision for serving infants born dependent on illicit drugs and abused or neglected children in the court system,
please visit her website at https://asasplace.org or her Facebook page.

Viewing this broadcast will give you the opportunity to see how well Asa is doing enjoying his preschool class at Trinity Lutheran School.
