The number of pregnancies out of wedlock (not to mention the broken marriages) is astounding, and I grieve for the children.
Me, too! All children want a Mom and Dad, not matter how many ways we are told otherwise. A little eleven year old boy on my son's midget football team kept asking my son, "Coach, can I live with you." My son would take the boys to places they wouldn't normally go, and this boy got a taste of what a Dad and Mom was like. My son didn't know how to respond correctly, until the boy's mother asked my son to take her son in. None of his family disputed the situation, so we got a new kid in the family. He will be 16 this summer. He is a black child, so imagine how badly he wanted a father, even if he was white!
