Adoptions needed

As an adoptive mom, I was so pleased to see Erin Spatz’ comments on possible adoption in her recent column. It is exciting to read her thoughts about including children in her family this way.

There are 120,000 children in the U.S. who are available for adoption and hoping to find a forever home. That is a huge number and there are even more kids in foster care who are not legally free but cannot be with their birth parents for some reason. Foster parents are also always needed.

“My wishes came true!” was what my youngest son said when he learned he was being adopted. Adoptuskids.com is one website that provides information about waiting children. You can search by state, age, gender, sibling group, etc.

“God sets the lonely in families” Ps 68:4

God bless you and Eric, Erin, as you prayerfully consider His plan for you and your family.

Urging non-partisan
city election

I’ll be voting for Paige Sawyer, this year’s best candidate for [Georgetown] City Council on Nov. 5.

Paige has done very well for the city during his time on Council. Paige is also a supporter of non-partisan elections.

Party politics doesn’t need to be  a part of our down home government where the tire meets the road.

City government should be involved with keeping the wolf away from our door, keeping our streets clean and safe, taking care of our trash, providing our utilities at a fair price, enforcing our ordinances that allow for orderly growth and development of a good business atmosphere.

Also, keeping a sharp eye on maintaining a balanced budget and keeping our taxes as low as any other municipality in South Carolina that performs our services.

Join me in electing Paige Sawyer to his 5th term on City Council on Nov. 5.
