Life Quotes: “True love, as demonstrated by God in Christ, considers what is best for another before considering what is best for self. Making an adoption plan for a baby is an act of great love. Certainly, parenting may be a loving option, especially if there is maturity and levels of support. But love asks what is best for the baby.” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans For Life A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life –


Building Healthy Families:  Dr. Gwenn O’Keeffe, a Boston-area pediatrician says there are “unique aspects of Facebook that can make it a particularly tough social landscape to navigate for kids already dealing with poor self esteem.” Watch for warning signs in your teenager and seek out services such as LFS counseling that can help your child manage issues like cyber bullying or depression directly related to on-line social networks.
