Today is the first day of National Adoption Month! I know it will suprise you but celebrating adoption is one of my favorite things to do! I hope you all will join me in celebrating and advocating for adoption this month! Here are some easy and fun things that you can do this month to celebrate adoption.
Donate a book about adoption to your local library, school, church, or daycare.
Visit Adopt US Kids and encourage your friends and family members to do so also. There are approximatly 129,000 children waiting to be adopted in the United States. You don't have to be perfect to be a parent. Please consider adopting an older child.
Donate money or time to an adoption agency in your area. Or just send a card of thanks or a basket of goodies to an adoption social worker you know. They will appreciate it!
Share your own adoption story in your community. Sharing about positive adoption stories is important and gives waiting children and families hope.
Let's try to make sure that every child has a home. Advocate for adoption today and everyday!
