AZCentral.com has this story today:
In February, The Republic's Wednesday's Child column featured Francisco, an ever-smiling, caring teenager who had no problem explaining what makes him happy.
Sadly, he still awaits a loving adoptive family that can give him the permanence and support he needs in his teenage years and beyond. (snip)
Be sure to watch Francisco's Wednesday's Child segment on Channel 12 at 5 and 11 a.m. today.
The Amazing Mrs. Jake and I adopted our first child 6 years ago, and our daughter has changed our lives in every way. When we first discussed adoption, I was hesitant because I had those doubts that most people probably do: Can I love an adopted child the same as one born to us?
The answer is, of course, YES. Shortly thereafter, Mrs. Jake was pregnant, and we had another daughter the following year. I can say unreservedly there is NO DIFFERENCE. We love both our children equally. They have very different personalities, but they BOTH have aspects of my wife's and my personalities.
If you've ever thought about adoption, or even if you haven't, tune in to Channel 12 today. This boy needs a home and a family.
