One of my favorite Christmas verses is one not normally associated with the traditional story we read in the Bible about baby Jesus, the shepherds, the choir of angels and the wise men, but it certainly speaks of the ultimate Christmas gift:
Behind every adoption is a story. Often there is a person, a family member, a group of friends, a church or humanitarian organization, who comes along side an adoptive family, providing spiritual and emotional support and sometimes there are those who provide a financial boost. These unsung heroes become part of the legacy of adoption.
