The adoption community is a mixture of people from all walks of life who have in some way experienced the same event just in different circumstances. Once having been through adoption, it changes an individual in ways that are unexplainable. We all rally together for a number of reasons - raising money to unite a family with their forever child, praying for an adopted child having major surgery, fundraising for those children left behind at our daughters'/sons' orphanages, etc. You name it, the adoption community has done it.
However, it's the stories we hear & read that sometimes have the most impact on our daily lives. We often find ourselves asking if we ARE doing enough for the orphans who just want a mom & dad to call their own who will show them the joy & love they so desire. I recently read such a post on the New Day Foster Home's blog. Check it out for yourself. It will tug at your heart & leave you thinking about little miss Emily & those who like her, long for someone to hold them & love them unconditionally. If you have ever thought about adopting, this will once again put that desire in your heart.
