From Mark Shea, a call goes out for an adoptive couple:

From: Holy Family Adoption Agency
I met with a young mother last night who wants to place her baby in adoption. She is being pressured by her own mother and her boyfriend to have an abortion, but with God's grace she has turned away from abortion and wants to place her baby in adoption. She is looking for a couple who does not live in Minnesota, who does not have any children and she would prefer an African American couple. I have been contacted by couples who live in other states, so I will be contacting them, but I do not know of any African American couple. We only place babies with Catholics who are striving to live by the true teachings of the Catholic Church, but we welcome anyone who wants to learn about the Catholic faith and who would eventually become Catholic.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in this adoption I would love to talk to them. Although the birth mother would prefer an African American couple, if she is unable to find one she likes, she is willing to consider a Caucasian couple.
