Whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.” — Matthew 18:5
The Catholic Pro-Life Committee considers adoption an important way to carry out our pro-life, pro-family mission. Our Project Gabriel / GEMS ministry works with hundreds of mothers, some who decide to parent, and others who decide to give the gift of life to another family. By educating women about the option of adoption, we know one absolute truth: placing a baby for adoption requires love, courage and selflessness beyond measure.
Many women say planning an adoption for their child is the hardest thing they have ever done, but one of the best things they have ever done. They know they have given their child a bright future while creating a path for their own future. They have made a family. In the end it’s all about LOVE.
