The agency in Alabama that placed Faith with us called today. They asked how soon we could be ready to adopt again. They have two sets of twins and one other baby all due in the next couple of months. And there are no families to place these children with! How can that be?
One major reason is race. These babies are all either bi-racial or full African-American. While adoption-minded families wait for years for a Caucasian or Chinese baby, very few families are open to children of darker races. It would be great if Christian families would get beyond race issues and take these children into their homes and thus into the Church.
