In the pro-life community you hear a lot about the number of babies that have been aborted. Indeed, the numbers are astounding. Over 54 million children have been murdered in abortion since Roe Vs. Wade. Over 3,000 babies will be murdered today, around 10 in the time it takes to read this post. And those numbers are just in the U.S. However, there are other numbers we don’t talk about as much as we should.
According to The US Department of Health and Human Services, 101,719 children were waiting to be adopted in the US last year. Of those waiting, a little over 52,000 were actually adopted. The numbers aren’t as large, probably because so many choose abortion, but the need is still there.
Last Tuesday, while the focus of the nation was on an immovable Congress, a moving story about an orphan boy was published online. The story of Davion, 15 years old, who boldly went to a church to ask someone to adopt him.
