"Step Forward for Orphans" March: Laura Ingraham

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

At Friday's march, Craig offered a reminder that our work is ahead of us. We need to support the Children in Families First legislation to be proposed soon by Senators Landrieu and Blunt. We need to keep the pressure on our elected officials and elevate our issues.

Laura Ingraham spoke at the close of the march and echoed these thoughts. Her passion is fueled by her children from Guatemala and Russia, two countries which today are closed to international adoption. Laura noted that as Americans, we may disagree on many issues, but all of us should be able to get behind the notion that “Every child deserves a family.”

Laura stayed very long after the march ended, speaking with and listening to every single family who wanted to share with her their story and their struggle. I was fortunate to witness firsthand her compassion for the children and families who are “stuck”.
