NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – On this Mother’s Day, the founder and CEO of the Worldwide Orphans Foundation sat down with CBS 2’s Cindy Hsu to discuss her new book, “Carried In Our Hearts.”
“It really reaches all of us, whether we’re adoptive parents or parents in general,” Dr. Jane Aronson told Hsu of the book. “Everybody who loves children can read this book and enjoy the passion people have about nurturing and loving, especially on a day like today.”
Aronson’s two sons, 13 and 15, were adopted.
She said she felt compelled to adopt from a young age to give a home to children in need.
Aronson said the adoption numbers have dropped over recent years, but said she’s hopeful the tide will turn soon.
“There are so many kids who need homes,” she told Hsu.
Aronson said the Worldwide Orphans Foundation has evolved since its inception in 1997.
“We’ve grown into a really big organization now,” Aronson told Hsu. “The outcomes are spectacular.”
