The answer; almost one thousand people from around the world.
When I read the email, my pulse quickened. As the mother of an eleven-year-old girl with Down syndrome, I oftenhelp parents cope with the prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. This email was urgent,
“There is a couple in another state who have contacted an adoption agency looking for a family to adopt their Down syndrome unborn baby. If a couple has not been found by today they plan to abort the baby. If you are interested in adopting this baby please contact Fr. VW IMMEDIATELY. We are asking all to pray for this baby and the wisdom that this couple realize the importance of human life and do not abort this beautiful gift from God.”
KIDS was formed for the purpose of gathering families who have chldren with Down syndrome and walking together in the annual March for Life in D.C. Our purpose is to raise awareness about the tragically high abortion rate of babies prenatally diagnosed with Down sydnrome. We wish also to proclaim the joys our special children bring to us.
