An adoption agency in the Amarillo area truly has a heart not only for the process of adoption, but also for everyone involved in the process.
Cindy Gilliland, Director and Founder of the Special Delivery Infant Adoption Agency in Amarillo, was the featured speaker for the Borger Rotary Club Tuesday afternoon. She said the agency is the only one of its type in the panhandle and truly has God at the heart of it.
She said adoption truly affects more families that most people realize. She said in the past, adoption was not an option for birthmothers, and they had no say-so in the matter.
