November is National Adoption Awareness Month, a time to consider the blessings of this life-affirming alternative to abortion. Life Issues Institute is celebrating a recent adoption in its extended family. Board Member Ray Clark and his wife Marylyn are the proud grandparents of Ray’s namesake, Robert Ray. The ecstatic parents are Megan and Brock Johnson.
This recent happy event has been a reminder to us that adoption is not only a great choice for the mother, her baby and the adoptive parents. It’s a real blessing to the grandparents, aunts, uncles and other family members and friends. Adoption has had a ripple effect that even impacts total strangers who are made aware of little Robert’s beginnings. Please consider the option of adoption with every unexpected pregnancy.
