“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

Some It's About Love Information from LDSFS Corporate Offices

It has come to our attention that some of our prospective adoptive applicants are not aware that they can include any level of contact and/or identifying information they desire on their It’s About Love web site listing. This would include but not be limited to:
  • E-mail address
  • Blog address
  • Facebook, Twitter, or other social media site

Of course, they are not required to include such information and the benefits and risks associated with doing so should be carefully considered.

AFFEC - Legally Free Children of the Month

Meet The Kids - Information is from: A Family For Every Child
Visit this page to see the current legally free children being listed by State: http://www.afamilyforeverychild.org/kids/
Note: We have found this program beneficial in finding families for our children. We ask that as you view our children, consider that they live in our communities. Respect their right to privacy, and be aware that they may attend school or church, or play at the local park with your children and relatives. The availability of their pictures leaves our children recognizable and vulnerable to negative attention. Although we strive to protect them, we need your help. Thank you!
