This is my son Kelly and my beautiful daughter-in-law Jessica. They are devout Catholics, unable to have a baby after many years of trying. In American it costs more to adopt a baby than it does to buy a car, or hire a surrogate "mother". I am so proud of my kids for trusting in God, and for choosing the right path. Somewhere out there - God knows - is a woman in a crisis pregnancy who is considering adoption over abortion. She needs to know there are good people who would be wonderful parents - people like my kids, who are already sacrificing so much in order to be able to adopt.
If your heart is moved, if you are able, if you believe adoption is a better option, please donate to their adoption fund. They have NO debt and have saved $20k but it's not enough. Even a small donation would be helpful. They are not the only ones waiting for Baby Franklin to come home. Grandma and Grandpa are waiting too.
I am a Catholic wife, mom and grandma. In 1995, after Bible college and a few years as an Evangelical Missionary, I was received into the Church at the Easter Vigil. These are my personal musings on Scripture, prayer, and living close to Jesus.
