A rising tide of love lifts all hearts

In early July, a woman learned through pre-natal testing that her baby had Down Syndrome. She went to an adoption agency and explained that she would abort the baby if a family could not be found to adopt her child in the next few days. In a little over a day, some fifteen hundred offers of adoption came in…

By the end of the parish work day on July 8th, parish staff had processed over 1,000 emails and over 500 phone calls from persons willing to make the sacrifice of adopting the child. Now the references have been vetted, and the birth mother is working with the adoption agency to make a suitable choice.

A rising tide of love lifts all hearts.
