Adoption


Adoption is a wonderful gift that you not only give to a couple that has been longing for a child of their own, or battling with infertility, but it is the greatest gift you can give your child. It is not uncommon for a woman experiencing an unplanned pregnancy to feel like she is unable to provide the care needed for a newborn. Through adoption she has the chance to give that child the life she feels unable to provide. Every year 50,000 American women chose to give the ultimate gift of love to their child. Many of these women once though abortion was their only option.
