On Nov. 4, a woman blogged “Today is orphan Sunday and my thoughts are on the newest little Marques who is in an orphanage somewhere in Ghana. I wonder where are you? How are you? Who are you?

Melissa Marques, 42, of Dearing wrote those words to a prospective child that she and husband David, 49, are seeking to adopt.
