Bea Cunningham, Director of Family Ministry, Old St. Patrick’s Church
The purpose of the Adoption Group is to provide a supportive and social network for adoptive families and to provide information that fosters understanding, respect and appreciation of the children’s unique beginnings, heritage and culture. Each November, we celebrate The Gift of Adoption at a special mass for all those whose lives have been blessed by adoption. A reception to follow the mass. Please see the general calendar for the specific date and time.
“The Chosen Heart”
Longing for a child to love,
I’d wish upon the stars above,
In my heart I always knew,
A part of me was meant for you.
I think of how happy we will be,
Once I adopt you, and you adopt me.
