Respect Life - Spiritual Adoption Update

What is Spiritual Adoption?

Spiritual Adoption is a way to prayerfully bond to one particular, yet unknown baby as he/she begins the journey from conception to birth. Through Spiritual Adoption, you commit yourself to remembering that child in prayer for 40 weeks, thus "adopting" them until the day that they are born. This is a prayerful way to open our hearts to those who are voiceless and to be a strong witness to the sanctity of all life.

Monthly Spiritual Adoption Update - Birth Announcement - July 14

I’ve met my mom and dad. They like me! They really like me!

Thank you so much for your prayers. You helped to keep me safe and well. My parents take such good care of me. That makes me want to take care of other people. Maybe I’ll be a doctor. My dad keeps talking about baseball. Maybe I will be a baseball player. I have time to think about it.

I will pray for you.

Please continue to pray for the beautiful bit of humanity that you have Spiritually Adopted.
