Kindness comes in all shapes and forms. And while some rely on faith and religion to assess their values, it really does not matter where it comes from as long as it does good. At the beginning of this year, a married couple from Virginia – Sarah Marie and Blake Thomas – put up a Facebook post that soon went viral. They were encouraging mothers who opted for abortion, to let them adopt the baby. Fast forward to today, their pursuit proved successful.

Please do not hesitate to contact us!” This was posted on 28th of January and almost instantly received over 24k likes and was shared 87k times.

Sarah Marie posted an update on her Facebook page: “Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in helping these women. At this time, we are no longer receiving messages and the women who contacted us have been referred to Pregnancy Resource Centers or adoption agencies. Thank you! Dozens of expectant mothers contacted us, many of whom were contemplating or planning abortions. Many of those mothers are now considering parenting their babies and others are actively pursuing adoption. We have had the great honor of accepting one mother’s request that we adopt her baby. It has been a whirlwind of a week and we are still processing all of it. We are so grateful for all of these babies’ lives and their mothers, and we feel so privileged and honored to be parents again in approximately 7 months!”

The Thomas family is raising a 1-year-old biological son together with 3-year-old Kayden, who’s been adopted through foster care. The couple have described him to the media as a “blessing and such a joy.”
