My friends hear me go on and on about what a fabulous thing adoption is. I'm always looking for opportunity to promote it because there are so many kids who have a need, especially sibling "sets" which are harder to place than single kids.

I was recently watching the evening news and they had a story on a small church in the community of Possum Trot, Texas who took it upon themselves to care for as many children as they possibly can.

To date the members of this church have adopted 72 children. That's 72 cycles of abuse and neglect that have been broken, 72 children who have a great start at life, 72 committments to make a difference in the world.

What a great number 72 is. Wouldn't it be great if it were bigger??


  1. Isn't that wonderful. It makes me think of this quote, "Never doubt that a small group of dedicated individuals can change the world. Indeed, they are the only ones who ever have."

  2. It makes me wish my house was bigger!!

  3. That's awesome! The only downside is all the kids have to live in a place called Possum Trot. Oh, how I love Texas... :)
