* I meant to post this yesterday and forgot it. With Mother’s Day upon us, and Father’s Day approaching, I began thinking about the couples who can’t have children. I have a cousin who was adopted as a matter of fact.
With the unprecedented numbers of abortions happening in these “modern times”, it is very hard for these couples to adopt infant children. My heart breaks for them. Many of these couples have the means to support several children, if they could just find them.
What is also unfortunate is the growing number of older children who are being abandoned and put into the system because people don’t want to take on a child/adolescent who already has issues that need to be addressed. This is a crying shame!!
Is this not a statement of the decline of our society in America? I can’t help but think that the more “liberal” we become, the more we fall short of morality, compassion, and charity. And the more we fall short, the more selfish and self-centered our society is.
Maybe it’s my age; being raised Catholic; or my Irish heritage (the Irish are known for their compassionate nature). I don’t know which, nor do I really care, I just think this is the worst state I have ever seen this country in and it is sad!!
Love and hugs,
