Project Cuddle is the result of one woman’s crusade to help prevent infants from being abandoned. Debbe Magnusen fostered over 30 drug-exposed babies, while raising two biological children. Eventually five of those beautiful little ones were adopted and became part of the Magnusen Family.
The Project Cuddle crisis line was started in the living room of Debbe’s home, with the hope of ending baby abandonment. Within 12 hours of opening the 24 hour crisis-line, Project Cuddle got its first crisis call. A frightened woman, who had hidden her pregnancy from everyone she knew. She was due to deliver at any minute and planned to put the newborn in the park. There was no time to waste! Debbe had only days to orchestrate a safe and legal alternative to abandonment. Project Cuddle was able to retain an attorney, a family yearning to rescue and adopt the baby, as well as an obstetrician, hospital and counselor. Debbe Magnusen coached this woman through the delivery of a beautiful baby girl. After the baby was delivered into the arms of the adoptive parents, the birth mother said to Debbe: “I feel like I’ve done something I can be proud of for the first time.” The woman did not break the law, the baby was safe and a rescue couple was overjoyed at having a new daughter in their lives.
Statistics indicate that 57 children are abandoned everyday Tragically, babies are being abandoned across the nation on a daily basis. Since its inception, Project Cuddle has saved over 735 babies across the country and into Canada from the fate of being abandoned, or worse.
Project Cuddle is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charity providing safe and legal alternatives to baby abandonment. What a beautiful example of a mom with a loving heart wanting to DO MORE!
We were personally introduced to this ministry by the Gingerich family, shown below. This young couple chose to become first time parents by participating in Project Cuddle. They went on to have two biological children and adopt another child through a private adoption. God grows families in the most wonderful ways!
