With quick strokes of her pen, Baltimore County Circuit Judge Sherrie R. Bailey made permanent families of each of the children and parents who came before her Saturday in a Baltimore County courtroom. The judge finalized the adoptions of infants, toddlers, school-age children and older teens, 10 in all, during a ceremony similar to hundreds of others around the nation on National Adoption Day. In Maryland courts alone, the adoptions of nearly 100 children became final during events intended to raise awareness of the plight of some 123,000 foster children in the United States in need of permanent homes.

Landing both a comic and tragic punch, Kwame Kwei-Armah's "Let There Be Love" rips into as many hot-button issues as nighttime cable news-o-tainment shows - race relations, immigration, abuse, sexual identity, aging, medical care, dying with dignity. But the 2008 work by the British Afro-Caribbean playwright, receiving its American premiere in a spot-on production from Center Stage, manages to face all of these heady matters with a disarming freshness, not to mention piercing honesty. On one level, the play suggests an updated, expletive-friendly "All in the Family," with Alfred, an elderly, unwell West Indian immigrant in London, taking the Archie Bunker role.

Sister Mary Gemma Neville, who established and led pastoral care programs, died of leukemia Wednesday at University of Maryland Hospital. She was 82. A deeply spiritual woman, she loved keeping journals, which eventually led her to write her own psalms and poetry. She thought of writing in her journal as corresponding with God. "If you have a favorite friend with whom you share your thoughts, you might write to them," she said in a 2005 Sisters of Bon Secours newsletter article. "With this, it's basically the same thing."
