The month of November is National Adoption Month. National Adoption Month is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the 153 million children in need of a permanent living situation and a loving family.
In 2011, Darren Hughes of Butler, Hughes and Hayes and his wife Margy changed the direction of a little girl’s life when they traveled to Najing, China to bring home their new daughter. “Sophia is a bundle of joy who loves people and loves to laugh” relates Darren, “we have a better understanding of God’s love for us, not only by being first-time parents, but also by being part of the miracle of adoption.” Darren and Margy are in the process of adopting a second child from China.
