"I Was Adopted" Essay by Denzell U.

Our team "met" a teenage guy who is one of the twelve adopted in his family.  He has an amazing story that I felt we should share with everyone!    I personally think it is awesome! :)   I've gotten several chances to talk with him & his mother.  They are wonderful people with BIG hearts for orphans!

Really, I think that once you've already experienced adoption you'll want to continue, because you'll find that it is a blessing, just like my parents did. Adoption can change everyone's life.

* So for those of you who have never adopted, I urge you to "hypothetically", excavate into adoption. I recommend you go to the Reece's Rainbow-Down Syndrome Adoption Ministry website to see some of the most precious angels, waiting to be adopted. You can find out more a  "
