TROTWOOD — Blacks need to care for black children who need homes, the
creator of a minority adoption program said Sunday.

"These kids are our kids," said the Rev. George Clements, the Catholic
priest who founded One Church, One Child in 1980 in Chicago.

Today One Church, One Child programs in 30 states have helped the
adoption of more than 100,000 children.

Clements urged the predominantly black audience at the Phillips Temple
CME Church to recall African tribal heritage. "When somebody dies,
somebody comes along and takes those children," said Clements, who has
adopted four children.
