  • Recently, going through an airport, I saw a poster of a beautiful little girl around 4, saying, “All I want for Christmas is a family.” It was an effective marketing tool because it touched my heart.

    There are many people wanting to adopt and many children waiting for someone to love them. Bless those who can find the place and time in their lives to give this little girl the best present of her life. Not everyone can adopt, but there are many children who just need someone to be their voice.
