It's a sad reality that too many children in the foster care system end up in less-than-ideal homing situations. Adoption is one of the most incredibly selfless things a person can do to help out these kids in need.
And one couple traveling back home from adopting a baby truly experienced the kindness of strangers...
Kids can truly enrich a person's life.Pouring your love into another person and raising them to adulthood is undeniably fulfilling.
And for those who choose not to have biological children...Adoption is a truly amazing thing to do for the world.
And one couple, Dustin and Caren Moore, chose this path.While traveling back from California with their newborn baby, something absolutely adorable happened...
