We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

New Adoption Education Website Launched

Please spread the word:

The National Council for Adoption has launched a new website today in Honor of National Birth Mother's Day. It is called "I Choose Adoption" and located at ichooseadoption.org The purpose of the website is to provide information to women who are unexpectedly pregnant and considering their options. Adoption is a very real choice that sadly many women may not choose because they don't know their options. Most domestic adoptions now are open or semi-open adoptions where the birth mother gets to see or receive information on how their birth child is doing. There are places on the site for birth mothers who have chose adoption to give their stories and for adoptive parents to also provide their stories. It is a win/win situation with the choice of life in a family who is ready to raise a child. As the website points out, "Adoption is not giving your baby away, it is giving your baby a chance"

On the main page the following Did you know fact is posted:

How ‘Bout Dem Apples
Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 to two University of Wisconsin graduate students who gave him up for adoption. Smart but directionless, Jobs experimented with different pursuits before starting Apple Computers with Steve Wozniak in 1976. Apple’s revolutionary products, which include the iPod, iPhone and iPad, are now seen as dictating the evolution of modern technology.

Not posted on the website but clearly the first thought that had come to my mind: 
What if Steve Jobs' birth parents had chosen abortion as their option? Can you imagine a world without Apple?
