Claire Culwell, keynote speaker for the March for Life Chicago set for Jan. 11, joins Bob to talk about her experience of meeting her birth mother in 2009, who told her she survived the surgical abortion that took the life of her twin brother. Next, Meghan Goodwin of USCCB and Leila Nimatallah of Catholic Relief Services talk about the Global Child Thrive Act currently before Congress. Then, Deacon Alfred Coleman, director of the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Zacchaeus House, talks about the ministry that offers a safe place for single, homeless men looking for a fresh start. Finally, Christopher Orlet, editor of The Messenger, the newspaper for the Belleville diocese, talks about his and his wife’s emotional journey in adopting a baby girl — an experience he recently wrote about in a touching column.
