60% of Americans have personal experience with adoption.
“In my work with medically fragile kids, Mason is one of the most wonderful children I have ever met.” -Foster parent/nurse
Mason, age 5, has a magical giggle and spontaneous smile that warrants a celebration! With heart-wrenching persistence, Mason perseveres in spite of outrageous odds - cerebral palsy; symptoms of Pierre Robin Syndrome; an inability to swallow, stand or walk; and much more. Caring for Mason, who functions at a four to six month old developmental level, is a substantial sacrifice, and an inspiring privilege. For all of his vulnerabilities and discomforts, Mason’s gift to an adoptive family is love.
