There are children of mixed race born right here in Oregon, whom appa­rently no one wants. Since 1956 an increas­ing number of children who are part Negro and part white have been referred to Cath­olic Services for Children. For the most part they are infants baptized Catholics and relinquished for adoption. At the present time this agency has have five such children available for adop­tion and three more who need foster homes until arrangements can be made for them to be adopted.

It would appear that the Catholic people of this area have an attitude toward these children which is less than Christian. Cath­olic Services for Children are anxious to find some families who have a sufficiently Christlike attitude combined with a desire to give a child a badly needed home. Will you help them?
