Rodney Atkins: ‘Love Saved My Life’
We'll see a lot more of Rodney Atkins on TV this month -- not singing country music, but rather singing the praises of adoption. Atkins is the celebrity spokesperson for the National Council for Adoption and will appear in several PSAs for the organization throughout the month of May. It's a cause that is near and dear his heart.
"Love saved my life," Atkins writes on the FamiliesForAll.org site. "You may not know it, but I was adopted as a baby by my wonderful parents, Allan and Margaret Atkins of Cumberland Gap, Tenn. I was a sickly baby, and after two sets of adoptive parents took me home, they returned me to the orphanage because of a serious respiratory infection. But as they say, the third time's a charm, because my mom and dad adopted me and took me into their home where I was raised in a family full of love. My parents believed that love is the best medicine, and I'm living proof of that."
