Oh, so many things about adoption popping up. First, the Sisters of Life are presenting "You & Me", an exhibit to coincide with the March for Life.
Then, this lovely piece from Truth & Charity, that details one couple's journey to adoption. The story features this quote from Bl. John Paul the Great: “…the existence of so many children without families suggests adoption
as a concrete way of love. Families like yours are here to say that this
is a possible and beautiful way, despite its difficulties; a way,
moreover, which is even more feasible than in the past, in this era of
globalization which shortens all distances.”
