New Babies

Recently we've received some new babies in the shelter.  They have similar stories.  We aren't allowed to give too many details on the internet.

The great thing about the stories of these babies is that their mothers are in the process of releasing them for adoption.  That is such a wonderful thing and a blessing for these babies.  So many times we receive children that have been abandoned and no one knows who their families are.  In that situation the social workers have to begin a long process of searching for parents and extended family who might want them.  It takes a VERY long time, months, and sometime years to accomplish this.  All the while the child is in limbo, unable to be adopted to a loving family.  We are so thankful for situations like this where the babies are ready to be adopted when they are still young.
