Saturday may have been one of the most important days in the life of a foster child.
As National Adoption Month culminated with Saturday's National Adoption Day celebrations in almost 400 cities nation wide, nearly 4,500 children in foster care just hoping and wishing for a permanent family will find just that.
With approximately 100,000 foster children waiting to be adopted, people thinking about kids need to think about adoption as an option.
Adopting a child can be one of the best gifts a person could ever give. To freely give another person all the love you have to offer, to invite someone into your life forever and to offer to share everything you have and own is not just special. It's miraculous.
Being a parent isn't easy, but neither is being a child. Even more so for a child who lives every day with temporary parents or guardians.
Especially for a child who wants nothing more than to be loved.
