This Child Shows, in a Poignant Way, His Deepest Hope

Every child needs a mother's love.

Megan Hilton September 05, 2014

This short video shares an impactful and moving message about adoption. Although the child in the video is an actor, the story was inspired by an actual event and reached deep into my heart when I stumbled upon it recently. Watching the video opened my heart and mind to considering all the different children in numerous situations around the world: kids wanting nothing more than a family of their own. Sometimes, we get caught up in what is going on every day in our own lives and forget the extent of the need for loving adoptive and foster parents. There are children waiting all over the world! Be sure you grab some tissues and watch with an open heart.
