COUNTRY MUSIC STAR RODNEY ATKINS ON ADOPTION

For You From The Word

who conducts his affairs with justice.

For You To Think About

rodney-atkins.jpgSelflessness. That’s the word best connected to adoption, according to country music artist Rodney Atkins.

“It’s a world of ‘self’ out there,” says Atkins. “Adoption has to be some form of service where people put another individual before themselves.”

  • Placing for adoption, when it’s in the best interest of the child, has been called “a most loving act.”
  • Adopting a child requires an unconditional acceptance of the unknown.

“People really need to be honest and ask themselves, ‘What . . . am I doing to make a difference?’” says Atkins. “Are you living, dying and then gone, or did you do something meaningful with your life?”

Atkins, the 2006 Academy of Music’s Male Artist of the Year, is well-acquainted with the selflessness that adoption requires.  He was adopted at the age of three. Today, he is stepfather to his wife’s two biological children.
