I was recently talking to a friend of mine who is having difficulty taking her babies full-term. She’s had 2 pregnancies and both times, she’s miscarried. Because of the heartaches that they have undergone for each miscarriage, they are now seriously considering adopting a baby instead. She asked me for my thoughts about it and I gave her my 100% support.
I think adoption or providing foster care is one of the most noble vocations one can have in life. I should know.
My daughter is adopted.
Not by me but by my Husband.
It was the best thing we ever did. When you show love to children, they will love you back. This rings true for me when I see my Husband and my daughter together. I have always been grateful that this loving man came into my life to complete us. What a difference this has made in our life.
How I wish other kids would find other compassionate and loving people to care for them. You could make a difference too in a child’s life. Adopt Us Kids can show you how.

“All children deserve a safe, happy life — including the 496,000 American children and youth in foster care. Young people in foster care especially need nurturing adults on their side because their own families are in crisis and unable to care for them.
Each May, we salute the compassionate people who make a difference by serving as foster parents, relative caregivers, mentors, advocates, social workers, and volunteers. Thanks to these unsung heroes, many formerly abused or neglected children and teens will either safely reunite with their parents, be cared for by relatives, or be adopted by loving families.”
