Raise Awareness on Super Bowl Sunday

Adoption holds a special place in my heart, having adopted two blessings here in the US. More than 100,000 children in need of a stable and loving family in the US - by sharing this message, you are giving all those children hope!

Shares His Heart for Adoption

The Super Bowl is just around the corner! Friends and families will gather together to watch the big game. At half-time, consider being a light of hope to one of the millions of orphans by showing this short video by Super Bowl-winning coach, Tony Dungy.

Coach Dungy and his wife, Lauren, have adopted several children and want to encourage others to step up and be the families these children are waiting for. Watch this short video created by Adoption Journey.



"The big win on Super Sunday would be to raise awareness about the millions of children who need a family. I would love to see thousands of local community groups and circles of friends consider how they can help," said Dungy, the winning head coach of the 2007 Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts.

The time you take to show this video at half-time on Sunday could be the kick off to a new life for a child!

  2. Oh....this made me cry.

    Adoption is so beautiful. It is definitely a roller coaster (at times) and not always sunshine and roses...

    ... but creating a family in the most biologically unnatural way is a gift from God and nothing else but a miracle.

  4. After injuries I received as a police officer during an undercover drug arrest I was forced to retire in 2003 I was depressed because I had to leave the job I loved.Little did I know the giant door that was yet to open .In 2005 I married the lady of my dreams we almost immediately discussed children and I was concerned of the children right here in the US.Christmas 2005 found us watching Home for the Holidays a yearly special raising adoption awareness .The program wasn't even over and we were on the phone and our quest began.In 2007 we were blessed with the placement of a 28 day old little girl we called Delaney we received through the Children's home of Pittsburgh Mario Lemieux Foundation she has opened my eyes to a magic I did not know exist .I feel more people need to look at adoption they would be saddened to find out how many exist here in the United States much less over seas .I like to thank the Dungy's for helping to spread the word .

  5. Shelby my brother is adopted, and we had several foster kids growing up. It was hard, very hard, and my sister and I were often confused and it broke our hearts when they had to leave. But as an adult, I know that my parents were just trying to share what we had with a kid who had nothing. I am 10000000% pro-adoption, and I love my brother so much and am thankful that adoption brought him to our family :)
