Virginia church puts couple’s unborn Down syndrome baby up for adoption on FACEBOOK

Posted By on July 10, 2013

There are so many couples waiting to adopt. Abortion is NOT the only option.

A Virginia church has been inundated with responses after it posted a message on its Facebook page asking for a family to adopt an unborn baby with Down syndrome that would otherwise be aborted.

The Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Gainesville posted the appeal first thing Monday after its lead pastor Reverend Thomas Vander Woude begged the young mother – who is just shy of six months pregnant – and her partner to let him find an appropriate adoptive family.

When they agreed, he took to social media and was shocked when he received more than 900 responses in a day from families willing to adopt the child and raise it as their own. The parents are now interviewing three of those families with an adoption agency.
