The Beauty of Adoption

“It has been said that adoption is more like a marriage than a birth: two (or more) individuals, each with their own unique mix of needs, patterns, and genetic history, coming together with love, hope, and commitment for a joint future. You become a family not because you share the same genes, but because you share love for each other.”- Joan McNamara, Co-chair of the Education Committee of the Joint Council for International Children’s Services and an adoptive parent

Families come in many different types, but at the heart of all of them is that love for each other. When covered with the love of Christ, your family can become a powerful demonstration of love and hope.
