The Blessings of Adoption on a Sunday Afternoon

Published on

On Sunday afternoons, I never know exactly what I will be doing.

One week, I may be mopping floors and washing dishes under the eye of my demanding step-mother. The next week, I’ll be saving lives with my red cape and trusty sidekick.

Or putting on my prettiest dress and hoping the prince will notice me at the ball. Or gathering sticks in the woods for a campfire by our covered wagon. Or urging on my trusty horse, Sunshine, as we race to the finish line.

All thanks to the imagination of my 6-year-old adopted sister.

Her imagination reminds me of her life in general and the lives of all adopted children — so full of possibilities. Their mothers recognized these possibilities when they chose not to have an abortion, and when they made the difficult decision to give their child to another family. And adoptive parents recognize these possibilities when they persevere through the paperwork and home studies and expenses to provide a loving home for a child.

Now, Pennsylvania is making the possibility of adoption easier to learn about. The Pennsylvania Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network just launched a new mobile adoption website this week at https://www.adoptpakids.org .

The new mobile site allows people to search adoption profiles, view a photo album, and learn how to become a foster or adoptive parent.

Please stop in when you get the chance and learn more about adoption in our state. You can look through the photos of children waiting to be adopted and read short profiles about them. Just imagine their potential!

Adoption can be such a blessing to children who need families; but in my experience, the blessings that they give back to their families often extend beyond anyone’s wildest imagination – especially on Sunday afternoons.
