Hey Everybody! It’s November! And that means…its National Adoption Month! At A Act of Love Adoptions, we celebrate every month as an adoption month, but November is officially the National celebratory month.
In a month where we give thanks and are grateful for all that we have, we are especially thankful for the wonderful people who have touched our lives through our work in adoption. Our staff has worked with the greatest adoptive parents and birthparents from all over the country. We are thankful for the amazing people you are. We have witnessed you share your hearts with us and with one another through the miracle of adoption. Through our twenty-one years in business, we are now getting to meet adoptees that are all grown up! What a thrill to talk to a teenager that you remember her birthmother placing her in the arms of her adoptive mother!
It’s amazing to think that over the past decade, over 500,000 children in America have been adopted, either at birth or through the foster care system. President Obama has announced that this year, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, is declared the 15th annual National adoption DAY. This will be a nationwide celebration where policymakers, practitioners and advocates will come together to finalize thousands of adoptions and add awareness to the thousands of children that are still in need of a permanent home.
If you would like to share your adoption story with us and others, we would love to hear from you. It is so heartwarming for those making the decision on whether to place, to hear about the experiences of others. It also gives adoptive parents hope that they can have a family through the generosity of loving birthparents. We would also love to see photos that you would be willing to share on our website and Facebook pages. If you would like to share your story, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to include a photo with your story we would love to see that as well.
We have been so blessed to have shared in so many of your beautiful adoption stories. Our office walls are filled with amazing photos of adorable babies. We would love to hear from you as we all give thanks this month for adoption. As a staff at A Act of Love Adoptions, we are unique in the fact that we have all been personally touched through adoption. It is why we do what we do. It is not just a job for us. We know we are deeply involved in our client’s lives. We have a passion for helping those who are in the process of adoption and go the extra mile to assist in that process.
We are so grateful during this month of Thanksgiving that we can also celebrate those who have adoption in their lives. I know birthparents, adoptive parents and adopted children alike, give thanks to all involved for making their life better and for creating one huge family of love.
Happy November! Happy Adoption Month! And, Happy month of Thanks!
