“I am only one, but I am one.

I cannot do everything, but I can do something.

And what I can do, that I ought to do.

And what I ought to do, by God's grace I shall do.” 

 

Expressed by Edward Everett Hale

 

 

Below are links for various adoption resources.  We also love books, so we included a very short booklist as well.  We hope to add more as we get the time.
