Spiritual adoption is a powerful way to live out the call to love and choose life. The idea was founded by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. The idea is to pray for an unknown baby for 9 months in the hope that this baby’s life will be spared and not aborted. To start, you can print out a spiritual adoption pledge card, fill it out, and sign. Then find a good place (maybe your refrigerator?) to put the pledge card where you will be able to see it and say the prayer daily for 9 months.
I plan on making my first spiritual adoption this week with my husband. I feel deeply excited and moved to be able to begin and share this experience with my husband. What a beautiful way of being able to start or add to your family!
During your earthly life this spiritually adopted child of yours is known only to God, but in the world to come it is hoped that you will meet the child whose life was spared by your prayers and spend eternal happiness with them. This prayer will make a difference between life and death for a special child.~spiritualadoption.org
