National Adoption Awareness Month
Although the official National Adoption Awareness Month is coming to a close, we hope that the message and intent continues all year long.
November is an important month for all children and families touched by adoption. It gives us a chance to bring attention to the need of many children to find a permanent family. Some of the children have found their families and homes with you; other children are still waiting. Adoption is not an easy process, it requires us to be brave, patient, and to challenge ourselves to see things from different perspectives. But, as difficult as the process might be - I think we would all agree that adoption brings out the best in people! From simple gestures of kindness to efforts and advocacy that make the impossible come true. During the days of November, please enjoy supporting adoption in any way that you know and feel is worthwhile. The possibilities are endless!
